Covid-19 Food Relief

COVID-19 Response: Food Relief Initiative

We’re so grateful to everyone who has given generously towards our emergency food relief efforts since the Covid-19 pandemic began. Together, we have raised over R441,500 for beneficiaries most impacted by the virus.

Since 2020, these funds have been used to distribute monthly food vouchers to:

  • 136 Work Readiness graduates (96 in 2020, 40 in 2021),
  • 48 moms who have been through antenatal and postnatal groups,
  • 38 food-insecure families identified by our staff, and
  • 47 food-insecure families identified by our partner schools.

In addition, donations provided:

  • A school feeding scheme top up for 200 families to receive meals five days a week (not twice).
  • R30,000 towards the Zoe Project and Fix Forward’s support of pregnant foreign nationals
  • R58,000 to the Rise Against Hunger feeding campaign.
