Stellar Foundation and Klawer Community Policing Forum joined forces and started a holiday feeding program for the children in needs in the community. Over a period of 10 days a total of more than 3,000 plates of food were served. This program would not have been possible without our sponsors of food supplies, finances and voluntary workers from the community. Another very important role player in the success of this project is the headmaster of Nieuwoudt Primary School. He offered his school’s kitchen as well as the gas throughout the program. He was also on site almost everyday and made himself available for assistance in any regard. Klawer Police Department ( SAPS ) helped with serving the food and supervision.


This project is a testimonial of a community standing up together and taking charge of the problem of malnutrition during the festive season.

In a meeting with Police Captain Coetzee she confirmed that during this holiday there was no report of crime amongst children.

This is definitely proof of a very successful project of which the results reach the whole community.

This feeding program was just the beginning of a project which we would like to implement during every school holiday. In South Africa we have four holidays per year. A manual has already been drawn up to teach kids traditional games and will be implemented from the next holiday to promote social, educational and physical development of our kids. Anyone who wish to make a contribution to this project can contact Irene Dell of Stellar Foundation ( Irene@stellarorganics.com ). Stellar Foundation is a non-profit organization and is responsible for the financial and logistical management of the project.
