UWC GK Chapter in Support of Stop Hunger Now

Body: 

“There comes a time when we heed a certain call, and the world must come together as one”. Never have we as the Golden Key executive committee connected with the lyrics of this song as we did in support of International Volunteers Day last year November when we helped Stop Hunger Now pack thousands of meals at De Vrije Zee Primary School to feed the poor.

Golden Key, the Lions Club, and many people of the public all came together to help Stop Hunger Now reach a target of packing 17500 meals. With our gloves, hairnets, and positive energy, we proudly reached that goal. One meal pack has enough nutrients to sustain an adult for an entire day. Each food pack contains rice, soya, veggie mix, and a small packet of 21 nutrients.

We arrived at the school excited and with a mindset to help. We left that school feeling proud, knowing we had contributed our small parts in making a big difference.

Stop Hunger Now is a worldwide relief organisation that manages the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. The organisation is driven by a vision to end world hunger in our lifetime in the most sustainable, efficient and effective manner.

Stop Hunger Now Meal Packaging Programme depends on donations in order to fund each meal-packaging event. Each meal cost only R2.50, R15 a bag which feeds six people, so whatever your contribution, it can make a big difference.
