GO-ing the extra mile
The GO! & Express joined about 600 people from in and around Buffalo City Metro who packed meals for needy children at Hemingways Mall on Saturday. A total of 97000 meals were packed on the day, enough to feed 370 children with five meals a day all year round.
The non-perishable meal packs from Rise Against Hunger, formerly Stop Hunger Now, are very nutritious and includes rice, soya, soup mix and a vitamin supplement and were distributed to beneficiaries via various local feeding programmes.
The GO! & Express were also the media partners for the event. Seen at the event after packing 450 meals are, from left, Thandeka Ntlonti (intern reporter), Wendy Kretschmann (classified coordinator), Ethienne Arends (news editor) and Cheryl Larsen (advertising rep) Picture: CAMERON KRETSCHMANN
