Our original vision was to encourage those in our community to consider partnering with a feeding scheme and assist. The suggestion was to make sandwiches and/or soup, in the confines of self-isolation at home and schedule a drop off to a central distribution point. The children of Lidgetton and Zenzani Village were identified as our initial concern.
Due to the incredible generosity and willingness of those who have contacted us, our project has grown to now include SEVEN Feeding Centres and aims to support hundreds of children. Our food relief is in the form of daily food packs to children, or food parcels or a combination of both. Many of the children being fed are from child headed homes or families where adults are unemployed.
Each of our centres has a representative who will facilitate the reception of groceries, the cooking of meals and sourcing of local helpers from the community to distribute food. A vital part of this process includes the hygienic preparation of food as well as hand washing and sanitising when food is served.
