Feeding Program

Feeding Program

Pikkewyntjies / Penguinkidz Pre-School has a feeding programme that keeps all their children fed, happy and full of energy all throughout the school day. This programme was a result of educators noticing that some of the children would come to school hungry and listless. Many of the children come from disadvantaged homes where three-square meals a day is not guaranteed, and because of their hunger, some of them struggled to concentrate and participate during class.

With their feeding programme, the children of Pikkewyntjies / Penguinkidz Pre-School get porridge in the morning, 11am tea-time sandwiches with fruits and a healthy and hot meal made with some of their own home-grown vegetables, for lunch.  

Unfortunately, for some of the kids, their lunch might be the last meal for the day.

In addition to getting regular schooling, each child receives breakfast, tea time sandwiches and fruit and a hot lunch every day. Being a non-profit organisation, this is very difficult to keep up with. So, if you wish to make a contribution and be part of the reason why a little boy or girl’s tummy is full, and whose mind is stimulated, contact Pikkewyntjies / Penguinkidz Pre-School directly.
