GK Chapter Hosts Annual ‘Toasties for Tummies’ Event to Honor Nelson Mandela


Golden Key International Honour Society, founded on 29 November 1977, is an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.

To honor the legacy of Nelson Mandela, the Golden Key Chapter at Stellenbosch University (located in South Africa) worked in partnership with Matie Community Service, a non-profit organization of the university, to host the annual Toasties for Tummies event. Toasties for Tummies is an initiative that brings various organizations and stakeholders together to prepare sandwiches for various schools and organizations in and around Stellenbosch to honor Madiba’s legacy in community service.

The event was held over the course of two days (18 and 27 July 2018) in 2 different locations; the TSS on Tygerberg Campus and on the Neelsie decks in the Neelsie Student Centre.  The Tygerberg campus made 1619 sandwiches, while 8842 were made on the Stellenbosch Campus for a total of 10,461 sandwiches created. The remaining 170 loaves on the Stellenbosch Campus were donated to the Disaster Unit along with condiments such as lettuce, mayonnaise and more.
