She provides daily lunch boxes that contain a variety of sandwiches, two sides of fruit, a juice and a packet of chips.

Sibisi said she began delivering to a local school in her area and was also open to delivery at workplaces.

“There was a good response, and I decided to take my business to social media.

“I was overwhelmed with the positive response.”

Sibisi, who worked as an educator assistant until April last year, said she witnessed first-hand what kids preferred eating and how some kids didn’t even eat.

“I’m hoping that my ideas would encourage kids to have a good meal at school, which is important for them.”

She said in addition to that, every child received a free hamper of goodies and stationery on their birthday.

Sibisi said the cost of her lunch boxes ranged from R450 (two days a week) to R650 (a full week).

She said she hoped to deliver throughout Durban, which depended on responses.
