Unitrans has celebrated its four-year relationship with the FoodForward charity by handing over a new truck to help the charity.

The handing over was timed to take place ahead of Mandela Day next week.

Unitrans says it continues to be inspired by one of Mandela’s famous sayings: "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead."

FoodForward is an organisation that makes a significant difference in the fight against hunger in SA.

Unitrans Supply Chain Solutions says it has been humbled by its partnership with the charity for the past four years.

Although partnerships with non-governmental organisations mostly relate to monetary contributions, Unitrans’s vision for socioeconomic development is to make a significant and sustainable impact, it says.

One way it achieves this is through the handing over in Johannesburg of an eight-tonne truck to FoodForward. The truck will complement the organisation’s fleet and ensure that more people can benefit from the distribution of food that is rescued from various retailers.
