Feed Mzansi

Food Lover's Market embarks on a charitable road trip, providing nutritious meals to hungry children across the country.

Food Lover’s Market invites you to follow their journey across the country, as they continue their efforts of feeding the hungry bellies of our children.

Joining forces with popular chefs and food influencers, Food Lover’s Market sets out on a meaningful cross-country road trip, and along the way challenges local foodies to create a nutritious feast for less privileged children, housed in local child and youth care centres. Our chefs will be inspired to cook using fresh produce from the Food Lover’s Market stores.
