RE: REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE: FOOD FOR LIFE SOUTH AFRICA
LTM Holdings, a proudly South African organisation, is invested in uplifting South Africa.
Our beliefs are:
- No act of kindness is too small
- If we all contribute in some small way, we could play a role in uplifting our nation as a whole
In response to growing concerns over food insecurity, hunger and other socio-economic challenges, LTM has partnered with the Food for Life Programme to address the dire needs of our people. We hereby wish to introduce key stakeholders, like yourself, to this great cause in the hopes that it can assist with much needed financial support to handle the day-to-day expenses of the organisation.
What is Food for Life?
Each day, millions of people go to bed hungry. The majority of these people comprises children. Food for Life Global is a food relief organisation which was established in 1974. It has developed into a phenomenal global vegetarian feeding scheme. Currently, there are 211 projects in 60 countries serving up to 2 million meals daily. To date, this global organisation has served over 6.4 billion meals, many whom rely on the programme as a primary food source. This number is constantly increasing and can be viewed on www.ffl.org. Many high-profile individuals, including Nelson Mandela and Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs, have praised this organisation for their dedication towards feeding those in need.
Food for Life: Mission Statement
The Organisation’s main objective is focused on the eradication of hunger and the elimination of poverty. Providing direct food distribution services through affiliated programs which further aims at addressing issues such as education, environmental health, sustainability and health care.

FOOD FOR LIFE SOUTH AFRICA
Food for Life South Africa is affiliated to Food for Life Global and follows in the footsteps of the global brand. The premise of non-sectarian and non- discriminating principles, respecting all religions and cultural traditions are strictly adhered to, whilst focussing on poverty-stricken people.
LTM, in collaboration with Food for Life, welcomes you to be part of the initiative by contributing towards this worthy cause and wish to make the following proposal for your kind consideration:
To date, Food for Life South Africa is distributing 100 000 vegetarian meals at R5.00 per serving. Our overall objective for the next month is to expand the outreach programme and achieve a target of R500 000.00. Funds will be allocated evenly amongst the 30 branches, as listed above, to enable them in their daily distribution. Refer to brochure annexed hereto.
Since the Organisation is funded largely by public donations, we would appreciate it if you would consider our application hereto. This would enable the Organisation, along with its branch members and volunteers, the opportunity to reach out to communities that are in dire need of sustenance, not only during this global pandemic but for the future as well. To someone who benefits from these donations, it can be the difference between food on the table or going to bed starving.
Food for Life has section18a status with SARS allowing a tax rebate on donations.
1) Sign up for a monthly debit order for Midrand – email firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Donate via EFT – Details below
3) Donate Food Items to the Midrand kitchen
4) Volunteering at the Midrand kitchen
In its purest form, food has the innate ability to break down barriers and heal body, mind and soul. Food for Life therefore serves only the purest of food – food that is prepared with love and served with love.
