It has been over two years since Sibahle Community began feeding people. Since it's inception in 2013, it has successfully fed a hot meal, three times weekly, to an average of 75 public health patients a day. Many of these patients are HIV and TB patients who add a bowl of delicious vegetable-filled soup and bread to their routine of medicines. The meals are served at a first come first serve basis, no questions asked.
In 2014 with the help of numerous sponsors and a group of dedicated volunteers we established a large multi-crop food garden. The garden is now supplying all the leafy greens and herbs for the meals, and will add in squash, root vegetables, and fruit as the season progresses.
The garden is becoming a meeting place where patients of all ages stop by to see what's happening, sample the produce, and share stories. The Sibahle garden is recognized as one of Slow Food International's 10,000 Garden's for Africa.
Moving into 2016 we have a goal of increasing our garden and kitchen production to fill 100 bellies a day. With your help we can achieve this goal.
