Last week the KFC team members got together to participate in a fun-filled cooking challenge, to feed over 250 children at Afrika Tikkun in Mfuleni, one of the 110 beneficiaries from KFC’s corporate social responsibility initiative, Add Hope.

The cooking challenge was a result of a number KFC team members requesting to get involved more with Add Hope and give back to the community.

KFC team members were tasked with the challenge to prepare, cook and serve nutritional and delicious meals to the children.

This was done using the same menu and secret recipe ingredients that Afrika Tikkun cooks with on a daily basis, but in just 3 hours.

Since its inception in 2009, Add Hope has achieved great strides making a meaningful difference to over 100 000 children across South Africa. It runs all year round on KFC menu boards and uses the power of a simple R2 donation to help make a difference to the lives of children across the country, every day.

Managing Director of KFC, Doug Smart adds, “This is a project that lies close to our heart as we are committed to the plight of hunger in South Africa

Add Hope supports feeding initiatives because we want the children of our country to be given access to nutritious and balanced meals in order to grow, learn and thrive, one meal at a time.

“We truly believe that every day should include a nutritious meal to nourish and support a child’s development.”

“Afrika Tikkun believes that every young person should be given the opportunity to be the best they can be. The work we do with KFC and its employees helps us realise this belief in the lives of vulnerable children and youth from disadvantaged communities. We certainly would not be able to ensure our children are developed from cradle to career, if KFC and its employees do not help us ensure that our beneficiaries are food secure at home and at our community centres. Thank you for the awesome work the team did at our Mfuleni Center” Onyi Nwaneri, Afrika Tikkun head of marketing and development.
