Impact achieved

• The team at Stratford Primary School were using the staff kitchen to provide meals for more than 300 children daily. The new and better-equipped kitchen provided by Breadline Africa was made possible by Peninsula School Feeding Association with funding from The MacFarlane Family Foundation.

•An unused storeroom was renovated into the new kitchen and fitted with all the essentials for food preparation, including a stove, cooking utensils, proper flooring, cupboards with lockable doors, a serving hatch, a sink, and shelving, along with safe electrical outlets and plumbing.

•During the celebratory event, Aunty Bessie Rhode, the school cook was congratulated on her many years of incredible service and wished well on her upcoming and well-deserved retirement. Aunty Bessie was thrilled that the school now has its own, safe kitchen from which to provide meals for all the children and although emotional, was very proud to hand over the kitchen responsibilities to the new cook.

•Principal Christopher Dietrich said: “Thank you so much to Peninsula School Feeding Association for all the years of nutritious food and for the commitment you have offered our school. We can now prepare nutritious meals for the children in a proper kitchen. In the end, this will benefit everyone because the educators know that the learners have received a meal and they can teach in the knowledge that the children are not hungry and are ready to learn. Thank you to everyone for this wonderful contribution.”

•In the spirit of the festive season, a special performance of Silent Night was performed by the school choir for all the guests.
