We are a church group that would like to distribute food parcels to families in our own community. We are insure what the best products will be to put into such a parcel. Is it maybe possible for you to send us a list of contents of such a parcel for a family of 4 for a month.
the contents of our food parcels for families depends largely on what we have been donated during the month. However, we generally at least include items such as:
– a jar of peanut butter
– a 2kg or so bag of rice
– a 1kg or 2kg bag of maize meal
– a bag of pasta
– a box or 2 of long-life milk
– 4 or more cans of baked beans
– 2 or 3 cans of tinned vegetables
– 2 or 3 cans of tinned meat and or tinned fish – pilchards, corned beef and the like
a 1kg bag of sugar (sugar is specifically generously donated to us every month, which is why it is included)
– 3 or 4 bags of instant noodles
– 3 or 4 packets of instant soup
– 30 or more tea bags
We ensure that everything we give to our recipients is non-perishable, particular as many of them do not have a fridge.
The parcels we provide are not enough to feed the entire family for the month unfortunately, but they do go a long way towards helping.
Thank you for your interest in this community service – I am sure you will find it extremely rewarding, as the North Durban Lions do.
