During the month of May, LottoStar brings our “May Money Madness” competition with Kfm 94.5, to the Western Cape, from the 9th to the 27th of May 2022. In the 3 weeks of the competition, we will be raising money for the Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA).
Buzz Aldrin once said, “If we can conquer space, we can conquer childhood hunger”, which is PSFA’s mission. PSFA’s mission is to eradicate childhood hunger by feeding hungry school children across the Western Cape. In its 64 years of operation, 170 educational institutions are on their feeding programme. To date, PSFA has provided over two billion meals to school children across the Western Cape.
Three out of four children go hungry due to poverty constraints and food insecurity, leading to malnutrition. Children who are malnourished are likely to experience illnesses, due to poor immune systems later linked to life-threatening diseases in their adult life.
Hunger affects children’s learning by restraining physical development, holding back their ability to focus and perform, and inhibiting children from attending school.
Children need nourishment so that they may grow and develop. The Peninsula School Feeding Association provides balanced meals, packed with nutrition across all food groups for breakfast and lunch, which enables children to develop their full potential, as well as promoting school attendance as children may focus on their studies, instead of focusing on the fact that they are hungry or where their next meal will come from.
Civilians can get involved by donating to PSFA’s various programmes, such as “Feed A Child for A Month”, “Feed A Child for A Year” and the like. Society at large can join in the fight to curb hunger, with the knowledge that their contribution will make a difference.
Please visit PSFA for more information on how to donate or support their various programmes.

The first week of LottoStar’s May Money Madness with Kfm 94.5 wrapped up with a bang. A total of R219,250 was raised for the Peninsula School Feeding Association. Schools that will be benefiting from these proceeds are Ithemba Primary, Observatory Junior and Zonnebloem Boys & Girl Primary.
In the second week, players will be playing Lightning Roulette with one of the Kfm 94.5’s presenters to stand a chance to win a share of R1 Million in cash, daily, for themselves and for the Peninsula School Feeding Association.
