Feeding families

Every Monday and some Saturdays, A Friend in need provides food parcels to approximately 280 families, living in dire need. For many, this will be the only food they receive all week.

Unfortunately, the need far outweighs the supply, and many more are turned away empty handed.

Woolworths kindly donates any excess fresh food from their local stores with the understanding that we collect it from them. However, tinned food, mealie meal, sugar and any dry groceries have to be sourced from elsewhere.

Thanks to The National Lottery, A friend in need was able to purchase a vehicle and employ a driver on a full time basis, to collect these food stuffs. This enables us to provide families with enough food for a week at a time.
