Formerly known as the African Children's Feeding Scheme, the ACFS has come a long way since the late Bishop Trevor Huddleston started the original peanut butter sandwich at schools in 1945.
Today, they pursue seven separate but inter-related activities aimed at uplifting and empowering communities in Soweto, Kagiso, Alexandra, Thembisa, Daveyton, Kwa Thema and Tsakane.
ACFS provides 10 000 children with milk and a peanut butter sandwich daily and, whilst this remains their core focus, they also work to promote healthy, contributing citizens who are economically viable and self-sufficient, through:
- Micro-economic empowerment programs
- Community food gardens
- Health and nutrition education
- HIV/AIDS awareness
