Kids at struggling Delft daycare centre sponsored with daily lunch for a year

The Bulelani Daycare Centre in Delft has one less thing to worry about thanks to a kind intervention by one of South Africa's largest food retailers.

Bulelani Daycare, like many other early childhood development centres, has been fighting to keep its doors open.

Co-founder Kerry Moller shared the daycare's story on CapeTalk with host Pippa Hudson late last year.

The interview moved Shoprite’s CSI team and promoted them to reach out to Moller and her staff.

After a visit to the daycare, Shoprite has decided to sponsor a daily, nutritious lunch for all 105 children at the daycare from the 15 March for the next 12 months.

The funding issue put them at a total disadvantage.

Lunga Schoeman, CSI spokesman - Shoprite

Because food security is a core of our business as a retailer, we decided to go and help.

Moller says her team is grateful and blown away by the generosity of Shoprite's Lunchbox Fund.

You truly can't teach a hungry child. These kids need so much more than just being looked after, they need to be fed and looked after.
