Oak Bay United has a very special friendship with the children at Slangspruit Primary School (SPS, in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa), a rural school in an impoverished community in South Africa. Many children here eat only one meal a day, a meal in school that is provided by the government, but unfortunately lacks nutrition for growth and physical and mental development. In partnership with Ukulapha Outreach Project, funds are sent to Carolyn Burns (founder and director), who lives in South Africa, to purchase nutritious food and ingredients and supervise the preparation of the food, that is served to the over 1,000 students at SPS. The food is cooked in huge vats in the school kitchen. Four special nutritious meals a year are provided: Easter Meal, Celebration Meal, Ubungane (Friendship) Meal and Christmas meal. For one meal in 2014, a Oak Bay United youth visited SPS to help Carolyn purchase the food to be cooked, spend time with the children in class, help prepare and cook the food, and serve the meal.
