Gift of the Givers started a national food parcel programme in 2002.A year later, they designed the food parcel programme for the Department of Social Development, who gave them R60 million to roll out 204,000 food parcels in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape – a first for an NGO. 

In December 2005, Gift of the Givers was the largest contributor to the Malawian President’s “Feed the Nation Fund” to provide food parcels for famine victims.
