You can now feed multiple families for less than R100.00 by making up easy meal packs and writing a note explaining how to prepare the meal.


Johannesburg, South Africa (19 May 2020) – Kindness Like Confetti has started collecting meal bags as a way to fill the gap between food parcel handouts. The meal bag is made up of six simple non-perishable pantry ingredients that make up a meal when water is added.

They 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 packs. The pack will feed a family of four for a day.

“Here’s an opportunity for you to feed a family of 4 during the pandemic!
The easy 3-step instructions are featured on the attached picture.

If you prefer, you can donate the ingredients, or make a donation into our bank account:

We recommend working through a charity that has all the correct permits in place, we wouldn’t encourage handing out meal packs without the proper paperwork in place. just in case.

We are seeing this method being adopted by several charities to reach out to your local charity and see if you can join the meal-in-a-bag movement.
