Tikvah is an independent, volunteer initiated body, which we are proud to say we have been partnered with for over 20 years.
Tikvah provides a bi-weekly fresh fruit and vegetable hamper for over 90 JCS Tikvah-registered clients, and we at JCS supervise, support, co-ordinate, and provide an intake service for Tikvah.
In South Africa, the ever-rising cost of living, along with the high unemployment rate means that many families struggle to make ends meet.
For these families, fruit and vegetables are often regarded as a luxury food item and therefore not seen as a necessity, placing healthy eating in the backseat.
Tikvah ensures that these families are able to include them in their diet.
Even though the Foodbank and Tikvah work differently, they both fall under ‘JCS food’ and compliment each other greatly.
This is all made possible through generous donations, pledges and annual fundraising events.
