NOSH Food Rescue NPC
NOSH is a non-profit social enterprise which aims to reduce food insecurity by diverting and repurposing prepared and perishable surplus food that is still wholesome and nutritious and redistributing it to a widening network of soup kitchens, shelters and feeding schemes. In our 6 years of operation, we've come to understand the vital role that the restaurant industry plays in our food systems. In a country like South Africa that is marked by both a high-calibre hospitality sector and extreme hunger, we have to find innovative ways to work together and find real solutions to our social plights.NOSH has provided over 50 000 meals to soup kitchens and feeding schemes over the past five years, and, through the Kitchens with Compassion initiative, provided over 31 000 meals to vulnerable communities in just five weeks since the start of lock-down.
