How can you help the Pebbles Kitchen feeding scheme?

So much change and so much good being done too. Hats off to the Pebbles team for using their kitchen to feed not only the children in need but also those families struggling during these trying times. But they need your help!

Pebbles' goal is to provide 5000 - 6000 meals daily, either as frozen prepared meals or dry family food parcels (rice, veg, mielie meal, eggs etc).

On Monday 6th April, 2936 meals were delivered to some of the Stellenbosch farm worker communities, a soup kitchen in Kylemore and 200 families in Lwandle near Strand. Another 2500 meals were prepared in the Pebbles kitchen, ready for delivery the next day.

The feeding scheme for vulnerable communities is a partnership with Stellenbosch Municipality and Stellenbosch Civil Action Network (SCAN), which allows Pebbles to provide up to 4000 people with a nutritious meal on a daily basis, prepared in the Pebbles food production facility at Joostenberg, which was launched just a year ago. These meals will feed families on farms where Pebbles has an ECD centre or After-School Club, as well as families in other local communities which have been identified by the municipality as in dire need of food.

Food parcels and cooked meals are being provided. The food parcels consists of dry goods and some fresh ingredients designed to produce 56 meals, which is 2 meals a day for a family of 4 for 7 days.  

Thank you to Paul Burema and Jolanda van Haperen from Clouds Wine & Guest Estate for making this happen.
