The Ladles of Love team set up a Gauteng HQ and the warehouse has been busy – they are inviting people to join for team building events.


Johannesburg, South Africa (26 February 2024) – While Ladles of Love may have been started in the Western Cape, it now has a branch in Gauteng too, and the team has been busy!

Ladles of Love has fed millions of South Africans and will continue to do so for years to come. In July 2014, Danny Diliberto, with the help of a chef and some volunteers, started cooking pots of soup every Tuesday from the restaurant he co-founded, Doppio Zero in St Georges Mall.

Over the following five years, the organisation grew. With the help of schools and other soup kitchens, food was served four times a week in the city centre. By March 2020, Ladles served about 14,000 meals a month. And then Covid-19 hit.

The organisation ramped up efforts to help feed as many people as possible. The pandemic left thousands of people without food. Ladles of Love started collecting food for soup kitchens, making sandwiches and breaking world records for canned food.

Since its founding, Ladles of Love has grown substantially. They opened the Gauteng branch to help reach more people.

They are hoping to connect with individuals and businesses to set up team-building events that will help with food packing and getting ready to make a difference in the community.

“Embrace the spirit of giving and make a meaningful impact. We invite your company to join us for a unique team-building experience that not only strengthens bonds but also contributes to our mission of feeding souls. Discover the joy of making a difference✨”
