Key to the programme is a series of meal packaging events, where volunteers package the meals. The meals are highly nutritious and comprise of rice, soya, dehydrated vegetable mix and a fortification pack of 23 essential minerals and vitamins specifically formulated to combat malnutrition (complying with the UNICEF standard).
The meal packaging event is a fun and engaging way for volunteers to be part of the drive to end child hunger. 40 volunteers can be package 10 000 meals in under two hours! Our volunteers range from children as young as four years old to senior citizens. Scholars that volunteer are awarded a Community Service Certificate.
Given the efficiencies of hosting of meal packaging events, we are able to scale the event from one benefiting a single ECD to a series of packaging events that would benefit an entire community.
