This Christmas, the Homestead needs to give food parcels to 45 of our shelter children, to support them while they spend a little time with their families. We also need to give 350 food parcels to children who attend our Drop-in centres in Valhalla Park, Manenberg, Town Two, Site C, and Woodstock.  These are children who need continued support to stay at home and off the street.

This year, the Homestead plans to distribute 395 food parcels to the value of R118 700.  Each food parcel costs about R300 and consists of: 2kg Rice, 1 Bull Brand corned meat, Rooibos Tea, 1 Tin Peas, 1 Lentils, 1 Sugar Beans, 1lt Oros, 2 Fruit Cocktail, 1×450 Apricot Jam, 1 Mix Vegs, 2 Macaroni, 2 Full Cream Milk, 2.5kg Maize Meal, 1 Lemon Creams, 1 Marie Biscuits.
