BMM Testlabs, the world's leading gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy, was pleased to have BMM South Africa staff give its 67 minutes on Mandela Day alongside Food Forward SA and Pick 'n Pay at the Gallagher Convention Centre.
BMM's VP, Operations and Sales, South Africa Zeena Rossouw commented, "Food Forward SA and Pick 'n Pay partnered on Mandela Day for a food drive. Their goal was to raise 1,000,000 meals for hungry people in South Africa. BMM South Africa staff joined them and rolled up their sleeves to sort and pack the donated groceries into food hampers for underprivileged people in South Africa."
Rossouw continued, "The national food drive reached 600 beneficiary organizations who work to provide warm meals to over 250,000 people daily. The food drive helped raise awareness to the 14 million South Africans that go hungry every day and highlighted all the hard work Food Forward SA does to help so many individuals. In collaboration with Pick 'n Pay, Food Forward was able to collect 151 tons of nutritious food."
Rossouw presented a donation cheque from BMM to go towards Food Forward SA of R10,000.00 to local celebrity chef and initiative ambassador, Sarah Graham.
Fund Development Manager Kate Hamilton commented, "BMM's generosity is immensely appreciated and the donation of R10 000.00 raised a total of 12,658 meals. We thank BMM and their South Africa staff for the support and unwavering commitment to the fight against hunger."
