On 28 June, staff from XtraSpace, Ecobox and SpaceBox joined forces, participating in a vetkoek and mince cook-off for Meals on Wheels.


Our team prepared and packaged a total of 300 meals. Then we had the pleasure of handing out the meals and interacting with the people at the Ebenezer Hannah Home in Walkerville.

Our team donned gloves, aprons and hair nets, peeled, chopped, cried over the onions and cooked up a storm, preparing golden vetkoek and tasty mince – ideal food for fighting hunger in the winter weather.

Well done to everyone for their teamwork and their chopping, cooking and “vetkoek stuffing” skills!


We packaged the food, packed it into the waiting van and made our way to Walkerville.

Then came the most rewarding part of the day – handing out the 300 meals we’d prepared to hungry kids and the elderly at the Ebenezer Hannah Home.

The Home was founded by Pastor Thomas Merime and his wife, Shirley Merime – both of whom grew up as orphans themselves. Today, it provides a much-needed home for orphaned children, as well as elderly people who have nobody else to turn to.
