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, we pursue seven separate but inter-related activities aimed at uplifting and empowering communities in Soweto, Kagiso, Alexandra, Thembisa, Daveyton, Kwa Thema and Tsakane.

We provide 31 500 children with milk and a peanut butter sandwich daily and, whilst this remains our core focus, we also work to promote healthy, contributing citizens who are economically viable and self sufficient, through:

It couldn't be easier to support your favouite charity, than by getting a MySchool/ MyVillage Card, with ACFS as the beneficiary, and swiping it every time you shop at Woolworths, Reggies and other participating stores. The card won't cost you a cent
– but ACFS will receive a percentage of the value of goods purchased.
