Join us on Nelson Mandela Day 2014, Feeding SA's tiny tummies

This year the ASSA is supporting FEED SA for our Nelson Mandela Day volunteer activity. FEED SA is a Feed SAnon-profit organization committed to feeding the hearts, minds and tummies of South African children in need. Their main aim is to establish feeding programs within townships. These feeding programs are aimed at those who receive no other forms of funding whatsoever. FEED SA also implements the building and setting up of creches (from the infrastructure to operations), teachers training and teaching curriculum. To date, FEED SA assists 42 beneficiaries – from Alexandra Township, Soweto, Orlando West, Orange Farm, and the West Rand (around 5,347 people). For more information about FEED SA, visit:

How you can Help!

We need volunteers to prepare sandwiches or donate the following lunch box items on Thursday, July 17. Please bring your donation to the July 3T venue, The Baron, Bryanston on Main Road Branch (corner of Main and Post House Road, Bryanston) from 6pm – 9pm. The items we need are:

  • Peanut Butter on white bread sandwiches, cut in half. (Prepared and placed back in the bread bag.)
  • Juice boxes
  • Apples

On Friday, July 18 we are looking for 4-6 volunteers to deliver and serve lunch to about 100 little ones. The location is still TBD, but it will be a school or creche in Alexandra. Carpooling will be arranged based on the locations of volunteers.

Ready to help? Contact for more information and/or to let us know how you’d like to help.

If you’re unable to volunteer your time, but would still like to contribute, we suggest a R67 payment made to the ASSA account, reference your name and Mandela Day. We will also be accepting donations at the July 3T on the 17th. At the end of July we’ll consolidate all payments and make a group donation to FEED SA.
