Covid-19 Food Relief

Food Relief

Food security for Common Good beneficiaries during the Covid-19 pandemic


Many of the people whom we serve through our programmes do not have the means to provide essential nutrition for their households during the national Covid-19 lockdown. While Common Good is not a relief agency, we are committed to journeying with our beneficiaries and recognise that we are in a position to help meet real and immediate physical needs.

We have set up a temporary relief fund, where 100% of donations received will be used to purchase food vouchers. These will be distributed to at-risk households with whom Common Good has a direct relationship: work readiness students and graduates, learners in our collaboration schools, moms from our ante- and postnatal groups, and local pastors in Common Ground’s church strengthening partnership.

Please note that the emergency Food Relief project is over and above the ongoing work of our early life, education and employment programmes. We have put mechanisms in place to ensure that voucher distribution is done in a transparent and credible manner.

Donations can be made online via EFT or Snapscan.
