“We originally started as an outreach program from our church.”
The outreach was established by the Highveld Anglican Board of Social Responsibility.
“We came together as a church because we saw the need within the community of Kinross.
As a group of women we reached out to the Kinross Golden Oldies Centre to find out if we can utilize their venue to reach out to the community of Kinross Ext 21 and 25,” said Ms Elaine Wildey further mentioning that the outreach kickstarted last year march when the lockdown began and they could see that people were suffering.
Every Thursday they feed between 180 to 200 people.
According to Ms Wildey, they do accept partnerships and currently Albany bakery help with bread.
Every week they come together to cook and feed the people.
“I would really like to appeal to the business community to support us because weekly we get more people and there might be times when we could not give everybody because we cook for a certain number of people and also depending on the donations we receive.
But we are grateful for what we are getting because we can serve the people.
When the school is closed children get food from the outreach and more of the people who benefit from the feeding scheme are children from the age of two years.”
