Domino launches Toti Sandwich Kitchen

With a heart to feed the vulnerable the Domino Foundation has partnered with Kingsway Church International to open up a new Sandwich Kitchen in Amanzimtoti.

The Toti Sandwich Kitchen works closely with local schools to identify the most vulnerable learners by providing delicious sandwiches to schoolchildren who don’t have a packed lunch. Empty tummies pose a serious barrier to learning, so by providing nutritious sandwiches children are able to concentrate in class. The Toti Feeding Kitchen is currently making and delivering 30 sandwiches to each of the three participating schools daily with hopes to expand the programme soon.

Hunger is something that an estimated 10.7 million South Africans face as they live on or below the poverty line of *R11 per day. The Domino Foundation’s feeding programme aims to support individuals rise above the line and since the beginning of the year The Domino Foundation has prepared and distributed 94 500 sandwiches.

“One of the key objectives of The Domino Foundation Feeding programme is to enhance learning through meeting children’s physical needs for health and balanced nutrition. We are excited to partner with Kingsway Church International in the South Coast area and align our visions through feeding,” said Shaun Tait, Chief Operating Officer at The Domino Foundation.

We encourage businesses and individuals who are wanting to assist in any way to contact Cheryl Dann at the church office on 031 903 8331 or by emailing feedingtoti@domino.org.za. The project is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to prepare the sandwiches and regular donations of eggs, mayonnaise, butter, bread, polony, peanut butter. The Domino Foundation offers a range of innovative solutions for meaningful CSI spend and are able to provide all documentation required for B-BBEE and tax exemption purposes.
