Year-end fund-raising Lunch at the ZEVENWACHT VILLAGE CLUB HOUSE

Sunday, 4th December 2016 at 12h30

Our year-end lunch will be prepared by the Philippa of the Oldfield Kitchen, and members of your committee. You may remember the delicious lunch she prepared for us at the Rio Largo Estate in April this year. Petrina Pakoe, Director of Peninsula School Feeding Association will join us for the lunch, and tell us a little about the organisation and its projects.


Main course
Thinly sliced roast beef sirloin with salsa verde and micro rocket
Smoked salmon ribbons with horseradish crème fraiche, crispy capers and dill

Quinoa and fennel salad
Baby potatoes with lemon and garlic aioli
Marinated artichoke, mozzarella salad with candied lemon rind
Roasted beetroot with feta and walnuts

Selection of freshly baked bread from The Woodstock Bakery

Chocolate torte
Meringues, berries and cream

We will not have a raffle this year, as it has not been possible for the committee to arrange for prizes to be collected for this purpose. We will, however, have a lucky draw for a few donated items. If any members have items to donate, please let us know. We suggest that you add R50, or more, to the cost of the lunch, as a donation to PSFA, and your name will go into the draw for these donations.


Peninsula School Feeding Association will be the recipient of the funds raised in this way. We recognise that this organisation delivers an essential service in providing nourishing meals to schools in the Western Cape, and would like to continue our support for the association. For those members who are not familiar with PSFA, this is a registered non-profit organisation established in 1958, which provides nutritious cooked meals to 28 237 children at 155 schools in the Western Cape. These are schools that do not receive the DoE subsidy, but who require help with feeding their children.

PSFA’s main aims are to reduce short term hunger, enhance children’s ability to learn through school feeding, and increase school attendance.

It costs PSFA R395.00 to feed one child every school day for a year, a little more than the cost of our lunch!

Do go to the website for more information:

The cost of the lunch, including wine, will be R320 per person for members and their guests.
Please add R50 (or more, if you’d like to), as a donation to PSFA, to the cost of each person attending the lunch. There will be no charge for children under 12.

Please let Lorna ( know the number of members and guests attending the lunch, with the names of your guests, by Monday November 28th. The venue can accommodate 60 people.
