The Angel Network has been on a mission to spread their reach into as many communities as possible; the charity negotiated a deal that will save lives.


Johannesburg, South Africa (18 June 2020) – Every charity is finding ways to adapt in the current climate. The need is so great that people are trying to do more, with fewer resources. One way this is being accomplished is by making Jars of Hope or a Meal-in-a-Bag.

Many charities have adopted this method as a short-term solution to fill hungry bellies. It is easier to feed hundreds of people by splitting resources. This is done by making meal bags.

Charities recommend buying rice, pasta, soup mix or split peas, lentils, stock cubes and soup packets. This won’t set you back more than R100.00 and you can make up multiple bags. The bag will feed a family of four for a day.

The Angel Network has taken it one step further by securing a major discount for the ingredients needed to put in the bags.

“The Angel Network has managed to negotiate an unbelievable deal for all those wanting to make up soup mix bottles or packets.

R66 for a 5kg of mixed lentils, barley, beans and rice that will make up 13 packets or bottles. All you have to add to each packet is a soup cube and a packet of soup. So to make up a pack will cost under R10. Collection in Morningside”

The deal guarantees more people can be fed, for much less! If you are making up these meal bags or jars, you can reach out to The Angel Network for more information or make your order here.

The Angel Network launched the campaign for Youth Day but hope to keep it going throughout the lockdown.
