Middelburg Friday Feeding
Middelburg Feed a Child has been handing out food to approximately 120 impoverished community members each and every Friday evening at 16:30.
The food is mainly sponsored by Woolworths and Blue Ribbon. Any other food donations are also shared amongst the group.
Feed a Child initially register members after making sure that they come from households that are in dire need of food. This is to eliminate fraud.
Members are randomly given number cards to ensure that rotation of members take place.
Each member is then given the opportunity to choose 1 item from the table and returns to the position in line. This is continued until all the food is shared.
In giving members a choice of food, this enhances dignity and ensures that members choose something that is not wasted.
