Foodchain Global (FCG), a blockchain ecosystem devoted to eradicating global poverty, has partnered with the non-profit FoodForward SA to help feed South Africans.
According to an IPSOS survey done in 2021, 40% of South Africans sleep hungry. Food is even more scarce than it was before the virus and the high price rate caused by Ukraine’s ongoing war. This is especially true in developing nations. FoodChainGlobal and FoodForward SA have teamed together to assist with the situation.
Foodchain Global has issued tokens and non-fungible tokens to aid in the fight against global hunger (NFTs).
Aside from this agreement, FoodChainGlobal’s FOOD token is now available on the MEXC trading platform. Simultaneously, as part of its “Foodies” series, launches 5,400 NFTs.
30% of the income generated by FCG’s FOOD token sales on MEXC is converted to USDT. The funds are subsequently converted to US dollars and spent on groceries.
FoodForward SA will then acquire the most critical food items utilizing its resources on the ground in South Africa. They will distribute them to individuals in need around the nation.
FoodChain Global’s goal of using NFTs, tokens, and P2E games to have a real-world impact remains unfulfilled. FCG’s primary aim is to solve the issue of global hunger.
Furthermore, by being upfront about its contributions, FCG builds trust. A public blockchain address and FCG’s proof-of-work page may be used to monitor everything.
“Our legal collaboration with FoodForward SA formally stretches our food contributions throughout the African continent,” Shawn Kurz, founder of FoodChain Global, adds. FoodForward SA was selected because it is a powerful on-the-ground organization.”
FoodForward SA’s Fund Development Manager, Deidre Adams, said: “Our formal partnership FoodForward SA officially expands our food donations onto the African continent. We chose FoodForward SA since they are a solid boots-on-the-ground organization.”
“The partnership will be a critical enabler of our work as we advance our core business of recovering good quality surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers, and redistributing this food to vulnerable communities across South Africa.”
