Jars of hope

With South Africa gripped in devastating looting and destruction of our country right now, the obvious threat to everyone is a major food shortage.

On top of the covid outbreak and the hundreds of jobs lost that won’t be able to be retrieved we face the possibility of a lot of hungry people.

Those who are privileged to be able to could make up jars of hope to keep and distribute among the people who may need them.

These jars of hope first circulated at the beginning of the covid outbreak last year and many of you may be familiar with them.

For those of you who aren’t I’m sharing this from Health, Heart and Home.

You will need for each jar to feed 4 people:

  • Coffee jar
  • 1/2 cup of rice
  • 1/2 cup of soup mix
  • 1/2 cup of lentils
  • Stock cube
  • 1 pkt soup powder

On to the jar place a sticker or give instructions to mix with 2 and half litres of boiling water.

This makes a healthy, nutritional and warm meal for a family of 4.
