TWO thousand hot tasty meals were served up last Thursday at the opening of Greytown Feeding Project's own venue - thanks to the commitment and dedication of the prime mover, D.R. Aheer and the support of community volunteers, individual sponsors, businesses and the Gift of the Givers.

The latter, together with the GFP, sponsored the first meal as well as a special treat of chocolates and 2 000 goodie bags.

As from Tuesday 21 June this amazing community project will be serving a hot meal on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.30am to the many in need - nearly one and half thousand registered last week.

There are many in need in Greytown - the indigent the sick, the unemployed, seniors, pensioners and vulnerable children, who, thanks to the generosity of many, and the dedicated volunteers who cook and serve each week, are at least assured of receiving two hot nutritious meals a week.

Sadly a number of employed people in their corporate and retail uniforms, presumed it is their right to receive a free meal too and barge their way into the queues.

It is hoped that by registering those really in need the "greedy" will not be fed.

Among the many who have contributed so generously over the years, mention must be made of the Greytown Primary School staff who have for the past 10 years given a monthly R350 to the scheme. Umvoti should be very proud of the Greytown Feeding Project, which together with the inspiration of D.R. Aheer and the many volunteers, young and old, who give of their time assist those in need in so many ways.
