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!
