It's been a tricky time for people across the world since the start of the lockdowns taking place, making life a bit more difficult to navigate around.

For most companies across the world it's become an eye-opener into how to service consumers and provide them with easy access to their products.

Difficult times do, however, allow for innovation and creates an opportunity for people across the world to think outside the box and explore new business models to make our everyday processes a lot easier - especially in fast-paced cities like Johannesburg.

These new ventures allow for greater integration with community-based organisations - NPOs and NGOs - to assist those unable to gain access to basic needs like food.

A local business in Johannesburg is doing just that.

Tree Sweets is a company offering delivery of fresh fruit and vegetables to your home on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Delivery is free and orders are a minimum R200!

Follow them on social media to get in contact with us and also stay up to date with their latest deals and more:

The venture was in its final stages of development before the lockdown restrictions were enforced and is thus only able to deliver to certain parts of Johannesburg for now.

These are the areas that have access to the service, which plans to increase its footprint moving forward:

Aldara Park, Beverly, Berario, Boskruin, Blackheath, Blairgowrie, Broadacres, Bryanston, Craighall, Craigavon, Cedar Lakes, Dainfern Estate, Darrenwood, Douglasdale, Dunkeld, Eagle Canyon Estate, Emmarentia, Fairland, Ferndale, Fontainbleau, Forest Town, Fourways, Greenside, Houghton, Kelly Ridge, Lonehill, Linden, Linden Ext, Magaliessig, Malanshof, Melrose North, Melville, Montgomery Park, Northcliff, Northgate, Northriding, Northwold, Norwood, Orchards, Parkhurst, Parktown North, Parkview, Parkwood, Pine Park, Randpark, Randpark Ridge, Robindale, Rosebank, Roosevelt Park, Saxonwold, Sundowner, Victory Park, Westcliff, and Weltevreden Park

One of the really incredible parts of the global lockdowns has been the manner in which humans have come together to make a difference and lend a helping hand to those in need.

We have received lot of requests from people wanting to know how they could help those in need.

Tree Sweets has also partnered on a #FeedTheHungry campaign with Kindness Like Confetti - JHB.

Kindness like Confetti is a registered non-profit organization headquartered in Johannesburg. We run five core projects - collecting and distributing sanitary pads (see ‘The Pad Princess’), a S.O.U.P kitchen where we feed the homeless and working disadvantaged. Through the S.O.U.P kitchen we also make up basic grocery hampers for those in need, a knitting project called The Joseph Jersey Project, The Dignity Bags initiative for women who've experienced trauma, rape or abuse, and Project Uplift where we collect bras for women who can't afford their own.

In addition to these projects, they run special projects in the spirit of kindness which target different community needs.

Find out more about the #FeedTheHungry campaign and how you can get involved by clicking here.

Tree Sweets will make NO profit from any gift cards bought for Kindness Like Confetti.

If you would rather buy a gift card for a friend or family member - that's also fine, forward them the gift card code and they can shop in the Tree Sweets store.

In a recent survey, it was found that 26% just under a third (26%) of South Africans said they have no money to buy food.

What I love about this service is that the App allows you to purchase gift cards for friends/ families living in the areas listed above, making it easier to lend a helping hand if you're able to do so.
