Bakery project grows

testing the new bakery oven

This week a team from Celebrate Life installed a second bakery oven at our ACFS Jabavu Community Centre in Soweto. This gives wings to our dream of being able to eventually bake enough bread every day to feed the over 10 000 hungry children enrolled in our feeding scheme.

Head Baker, Thembisa Msimango, gave the community a ‘taste of the goods’ and everyone agreed that the fresh bread was nothing short of delicious!

A big thank you to Celebrate Life and Hylton Ross Exclusive Touring for sponsoring this oven – what a difference you are making to this community!

Mandela Day volunteers

SA Chefs cook up a storm for our kids on Mandela Day

Mandela Day volunteers

Huge thanks as always to the generous volunteers from the South African Chefs Association. Every year – and 2019 was no exception – a team arrives at one of our centres on Mandela Day, with car loads of fresh ingredients, pots and pans.

Soon the air is filled with the mouthwatering aroma of stewing meat and vegetables, and our little ones queue up to receive their nourishing meal. The gogos working in the vegetable garden aren’t forgotten either. When they take their rest at midday, they also enjoy the delicious meal dished up by the chefs. Then, in the afternoon, the school kids start arriving with eager anticipation.

In between all the cooking, there’s time to play with the kids and even test your skill with a hula hoop!
