Heritage Day celebrations with MacCare

Heritage Day celebrations with MacCare


Heritage Day on 24 September recognises and celebrates the cultural wealth of our nation. South Africans celebrate the day by remembering the cultural heritage of the many cultures that make up the population of South Africa. Various events are staged throughout the country to commemorate this day.

Heritage Day is a national holiday and better known to South Africans as National Braai Day. It is not a day to count your calories!

Feedem understands the importance of National Braai Day and how our residents love the fires to be lit, the smell of the braai, spending time with friends and enjoying the great outdoors! Our residents had a wonderful day. Thank you Feedem!

Tzaneen, Limpopo

We had a wonderful pre-Heritage Day braai. ZZ2 and Breed Security services of Tzaneen supplied the braaiers and as you can see, they did a grand feast for us. Feedem made Chicken Kebabs, boerewors, braaibroodjies, salad spread, potato bake and malva poeding!
