Catering Solutions partnered Porter’s Race this year providing meals to 300 participants. The food was valued at K750,000.
Catering Solutions General Manager, Thumbiko Kondowe, said the Porters race is an extreme sport and that for an athlete to perform well, they require good and nutritious food.
“Catering Solutions Ltd is an expert in outdoor events catering and was approached by Porters Race to provide services at the event. However, the organisers did not have the funds to pay for the service.
“Management of Catering Solutions recognises that the Porter’s Race is a very important event that goes a long way in helping the growth and development of the tourism sector in the country as it attracts both local and international participants.
“We, therefore, decided to provide the catering services free of charge as part of our corporate social responsibility,” he said.
According to Kondowe, the food that Catering Solutions provided helped to enhance the performance of the athletes, thereby adding to the color and pomp of the event.
