Times change and programmes evolve. But one thing will never change: our determination to nourish hungry children.
The ACFS runs a two-tier feeding programme:
- The after school feeding programme reaches over 12 000 children at nine community centres. They are served a peanut butter sandwich with a cup of milk and fresh fruit three days a week; and a hot meal twice a week.
- Our ECD programme caters for 260 children aged three to six years. They receive formal ECD classes and porridge, a fresh fruit snack, and a hot lunch.
- A nutrition outreach programme targets very young children from much-deprived households in informal settlements. It reaches about 2 400 children.
- Monthly food parcels are distributed to 350 families living far below the breadline. Food parcels are donated mainly by well-wishers and companies like Tiger Brands. Parents and caregivers also receive food garden training.
We thank all our donors for helping us build this wonderful network of nourishment.
