Over 60 volunteers braved the wet, cold rainy weather in Cape Town to give their 67 minutes of service in support of Mandela Day to kick off the Stop Hunger Now SA "Head start! Heads Up" campaign which will see over 450 000 meals packaged countrywide at over 30 events in the month of July.
Three sessions of 67 minutes were held, where volunteers packaged over 8 000 meals for under-resourced early childhood development (ECD) centres in the Western Cape.
Volunteers consisted of regulars to our Second Saturday events, as well as a new group of Round Tablers from the Northern Suburbs.
Nelson Mandela said that there is no keener revelation of a country's soul than the way it treats its children. By showing their spirit to ensure that it was "raining meals" in the winter cold, Capetonians showed their soul was vibrant, alive and caring.
