Nosh Food Rescue (Nosh) is a Non Profit Organisation that aims to reduce food insecurity, by diverting, repurposing, and redistributing prepared and perishable surplus food that is still wholesome and nutritious. Nosh has provided over 6.5 million meals to soup kitchens and feeding schemes over the past 5 years.
Poor nutrition leads to increased illness, reduced life expectancy, poor education outcomes, increased violence and unnecessary suffering amongst the poorest sections of society. It entrenches and intensifies existing inequalities which in turn lead to civil unrest and other societal ills.
Food insecurity is a global problem which impacts the poorest sections of all societies. Nosh currently operates in and around Johannesburg.
Nosh offers volunteers the opportunity to help with mundane and every-day tasks as well as ongoing developmental and administrative functions. With food always coming in and needing to be sorted and processed volunteers are welcome to help with the process.
