Morningside’s Joanne Tooch and Sandown’s Candice Etberg are firm believers that the ripple effects of change start with one person and one gesture. Through Feed SA they’re feeding bodies, minds and souls and changing lives.
Tell us about Feed SA …
Candice – It’s a non-profit organisation and our main aim is to establish feeding programmes in the townships to provide at least two meals a day for people who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. At the moment we fill 3814 tummies a day and we intend to raise that number tenfold. Feed SA also sets up crèches from the infrastructure to the operations and curriculum. The caregivers of the crèches are trained and equipped with early childhood educational programmes and after an 18 month period they receive the teaching qualifications that equip them to run their own businesses. Another vital aspect is the collection of clothing and blankets. We also uplift the community by celebrating fun holidays like Christmas.
