PSFA Blisters for Bread in Association with Lucky Star

PSFA is delighted to announce that after a two-year postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting our popular fundraising event, the Blisters for Bread Charity Family Fun Walk on Sunday 28 August 2022.

The event, which will start at Fritz Sonnenberg Road, Green Point and end at Green Point Cricket Club, will include two routes along the Sea Point Promenade, a 10km walk that will start at 7:45 am and a 5km walk that will start at 8 am. Every person who enters will receive a medal and refreshments sponsored by Coca-Cola Peninsula Beverages.

We call on everyone to join us in the fight against childhood hunger by entering this special fun family event at the cost of only R100 per person. Each entry fee will enable PSFA to provide 33 schoolchildren affected by poverty with a nutritious cooked breakfast and lunch for an entire day!

Please note that only online entries will be accepted for this year’s Blisters for Bread Walk. Entries are limited to 2 000 people. To enter please visit www.psfa.org.za

“Although this year’s Blisters for Bread has been scaled down in size due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt that it would be important to host the event this year to keep our 54-year-old Blisters for Bread brand alive in the hearts and minds of our supporters,” says Petrina Pakoe, director of PSFA. “This event provides us with a platform to raise funds to feed impoverished schoolchildren and to create awareness of childhood hunger.”

The Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA) was established in 1958 when the government at the time discontinued the national school feeding programme.

Aware of the need for school feeding, the Rotary Club of Paarden Eiland (now the Rotary Club of Table Bay) called a public meeting, and the organisation was established on March 10, 1958.

PSFA is a registered non-profit organisation that addresses hunger in young learners and students attending Primary, Secondary and special needs schools as well as Orphaned & Vulnerable Children Centres (OVCs), Early Childhood Development Centres (ECDs) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Colleges (TVETS) in the Western Province.

PSFA’s main aims are to reduce short term hunger, enhance children’s ability to learn through school feeding and increase school attendance.

PSFA has to date provided over 1,7 billion nutritious meals to hungry school children across the Western Province.

PSFA is governed by a voluntary management committee that oversees the strategic and policy framework of the organisation, whilst day to day operations are managed by a full time staff complement.

Through good governance over the years, PSFA has built and maintained an investment reserve that generates interest enough to cover all operating expenses.

This means that 100% of all donations are directed exclusively to the actual cost of school feeding.

PSFA has a Section 18A status, which makes all donations tax deductible.
Our NPO Registration Number is: 002-878.
