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) only in the Western Cape province of South Africa.
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 two 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.
To combat the prevalence of hunger in children attending schools and other educational institutions, through school feeding and other developmental initiatives.
