Mission Nutrition: Legacy Partners with Nutriwell and raises over R1 million to feed communities in need!

 

South Africa (12 August 2020) – Legacy Hotels & Resorts, the leaders and experts in independent luxury hotels and resorts across Africa, has partnered with Nutriwell – Innovative Nutrition Solutions, to feed communities neighbouring its hotels and resorts, during the Covid-19 pandemic and today hit the milestone of delivering over 500,000 meals since April.

This project forms part of its ambitious task of feeding over 10 million children over the next two years. 

Nutriwell to-date has helped feed over 1 million children with its range of fortified powdered products, including a bowl of thick vegetable soup, soya stew mince, instant porridge and an instant beverage shake.

Now Legacy Hotels & Resorts, through its Legacy Pride NPC, is contributing 7,500 individual, nutritionally-balanced meals per day, with the target of achieving 15,000 meals per day and is appealing to others to contribute to the initiative via this link: https://pay.legacyhotels.co.za/pride/

So far, the project has contributed meals to Friends for Life in Alexandra, each of the North West’s Mogwase and Ledig communities and households in Belfast in Mpumalanga.  Both SizaBantswana Orphans in Hazyview and Baphemele Children’s Home in Cape Town have also received meals.

Speaking about the partnership, Robert Hodson, Group Marketing Manager for Legacy Hotels & Resorts reiterated how the values of community participation and leaving a legacy for the future, was something that was shared by both organisations.

“Legacy has over 20 properties across the continent, and involvement and upliftment is a big part of our ethos,” says Hodson.

“The Coronavirus pandemic has further highlighted the significant inequalities that exist in our country, and now more than ever, we need to help each other in the fight against poverty.” 

“By partnering with an organisation like Nutriwell, we can continue our work with local community upliftment, while also investing in the health and wellbeing of our greatest resource – our children,” he concludes.
