Poverty won't magically disappear.

Author: Shilo

Shiloh Food entered some unknown territory during the last two weeks of March with the announcement of the National State of Disaster (COVID-19), followed shortly thereafter by a total lockdown due to the pandemic.

Being classified as an essential service, Shiloh Food had to produce freshly cooked meals seven days per week. Currently we average some 1,600 meals per day.

Although our client base radically changed (e.g. pre-schools and after care centres had to close), new clients were added to our existing list, e.g. care centres for homeless people, temporary cold front sleeping sites for street people at churches and various newly established feeding schemes. Such times of hardship is why Shiloh Food was established years ago, and why we could by the grace of God, step up to yet another challenge.

With the current Covid-19 pandemic in our midst, strict protocol is being followed. Apart from regular hand washing and sanitising, which have always been part of our day-to-day operations, we have implemented strict access control and monitoring.

To God all the Glory who sustains us during such a trail-some time.

The TANNIE ek is HONGER bar


So many teachers are confronted with this statement daily. But breakfast is not always practical. The teacher/school social worker needs something to give the learner on the spot, discreetly and without making a fuss.

Please consider baking a few breakfast bars. We will individually package and distribute to the schools.

This suggested recipe can be tweaked and zooshed up as you wish...

Easy Breakfast Bars

2 cups rolled oats
½ cup shredded coconut
½ cup honey
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon salt

Bake in preheated oven (165°C) until beginning to dry, about 15 minutes for crunchy granola bars, less if you like them chewy. Cool completely before cutting.

Drop off at Shiloh Offices at 6 Dirkie Uys street, Protea Heights,  Brackenfell.
