On Friday 15 June 2018 a convoy of AGT Foods and RADA personnel set off for Orange Farm to deliver raw food ingredients to Thato KeMatla foster and safety house. AGT Foods Africa is a patron of the RADA cause and has committed to providing enough ingredients for two meals per day to approximately 160 residents. The donation to Thato KeMatla began last year and will continue as a monthly long-term donation.
The wide range of healthy food ingredients include sugar beans, a variety of lentils, soup mix, couscous and green pea chips. Said Dean Miller, Marketing Manager AGT Foods Africa, “AGT has long been a generous donor of food and other products to reliable organisations. Our products are high in fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals and can be made into delicious, nutritious and balanced meals for the children.
RADA is an acronym for rape, alcohol, drug and abuse. It is a registered non-profit company that is trying to combat these addictions and atrocities. RADA works very closely with communities in Orange Farm.
