How do our Affiliates Support Eat Better South Africa?
“Every human being is a raindrop. And when enough of the raindrops become clear and coherent they become the power of the storm” – John Trudell
Each of The Noakes Foundation affiliates pledges to support Eat Better South Africa! our community education initiative.
How do affiliates support our community program?
- By donating a portion of each product sold to Eat Better South Africa!
- By donating products to the community participants and penetrating a new market
- By kick-starting each community participants LCHF journeys through product donations
Where does the money go?
The Noakes Foundation’s goal is to change the way South Africa eats, one community at a time, starting with those who need our help the most. The poorest are getting sick first, impoverished communities are riddled with obesity, type 2 diabetes and other metabolic syndromes – these illnesses are nutritionally related diseases and can be reversed through proper diet. The EBSA program is aimed at educating people from lower income areas by teaching them to get better by eating better. Men and women from these communities sign up to a six-week course where they learn about the benefits of a low-carb high healthy fat diet and are assisted in making better food choices through nutrition education, meal and budget planning, and general nutritional awareness.
The income from affiliate partners goes towards:
- The training of EBSA Ambassadors
- The roll out of a 6-week community intervention
- Medical advice and supervision
- Input and support from Doctors, Dieticians and Nutritionists
Who are you helping?
The recipients from our community programmes are from previously disadvantaged communities, schools and health groups who suffer from various nutritionally related illnesses, and who have never been taught about the dangers of excessive sugar and carbohydrate consumption.
