From farm to fork, Farm Africa’s Food for Good network unites global food and farming businesses behind the power of food to change lives.
Since 2011, a key element of the network has been a series of unique fundraising challenges in eastern Africa for senior leaders from across the industry. Groups have trekked up mountains and across savannahs, and rolled up their sleeves to dig ﬁshponds, build beehives and plant trees alongside smallholder farmers participating in Farm Africa’s programmes.
All of our treks are truly individual, and have been enormous successes: raising significant funds for Farm Africa’s programmes across the eastern Africa region and bringing like-minded leaders from across the food and farming sectors to embark on the trip of a lifetime.
The next Food for Good adventure will be to Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains
The Trek was due to take place on 25th September - 4th October 2020. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the decision to postpone the trek to 2021. We will publish new dates as soon as we can.
I have had the privilege of undertaking this signiﬁcant challenge with the most inspirational human beings imaginable, but we also experienced people, places and situations that have touched my heart and mind for a lifetime. Farm Africa’s project work is incredible. It is educating farmers in best practice, increasing job opportunities by growing farms that will need labour and grow the most valuable thing - FOOD.
