The Tiger Brands Foundation has distributed 6000 food hampers in communities where its beneficiary schools are located. The organisation provides in-school breakfast at over 100 non-fee paying schools across South Africa.
“This is a very critical time for the country, and our learners specifically. Some of our learners come from food insecure families and we do not want to reverse any of the gains that have been made in the nutritional and academic aspect of our beneficiary’s lives,” says Eugene Absolom, director at the foundation.
The hampers include flour, pilchards, rice, beans, morvite, oats, samp, mealie meal, soap and milk powder among others.
