Our food parcels

Each food parcel is packed with nutrient-dense food as recommended by our in-house dietician. The quantities have been calculated to provide a family of four with approximately 6000kJ in energy-giving foods.
This includes 50g protein (the minimum requirements for growth), vitamin and mineral-enriched foods (to boost immune function) and servings of fruit and vegetables. Each parcel is valued at R1650 and consists of:

1 x 5kg samp
1 x 5kg maize meal
1 x 2.5kg maize meal
2 x 1kg maize meal or sorghum porridge
1 x 2 litres sunflower oil
2 x 1kg full cream milk powder
1 x 7kg sweet potatoes
1 x 7kg onions
1 x 7kg whole butternut
10 x 400g tins baked beans
4 x 500g legumes
10 x 400g tins pilchards / 4kg tinned fish
4 x large jars peanut butter
5 x large pocket oranges
4 x 1kg dried sugar beans
1 x 1kg macaroni or pasta
2 x 500g dried soup mix (lentils, split peas etc.)
1 x 5kg carrots
1 x 2kg rice

In all we do we are mindful of minimising our environmental impact and all food parcels are packed in two Green Pick n Pay reusable bags. To date, more than 500 000 Green Bags have been used. Each bag is made from two 500ml recycled plastic bottles, meaning these don’t end up in landfill sites.

Thank you! We couldn’t have done this without you.

We urge every South African to continue with us on our journey to Feed the Nation.
