Students at Camps Bay High School have been using their break time to make sandwiches which they then donate to Ladles of Love for distribution.


Cape Town, South Africa (19 October 2020) – Ladles of Love have set up a small community centre in the parking lot of Clifton 4th Beach. There, they hand out sandwiches to those in need of some food.

The Camps Bay High School Interact Society hosted a RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) Week, where they used their lunch breaks to make sandwiches for the less fortunate. They called the project, “Bread Buddies” and make delicious peanut butter sandwiches.

The sandwiches were added to what the volunteers of Ladles of Love’s Camps Bay Community make on a daily basis. They started the sandwich drive at the begenning of lockdown to help combat the hunger felt by communities throughout the Cape Peninsula.

Ladles of Love hit 2 million sandwiches for their sandwich drive in August this year, and it just keeps growing. To put this milestone in perspective, 2 million sarmies is equal to 280kms (based on an average slice of bread at 14cm) 2 million sarmies in metres is 257 times the height of Table Mountain, 50 times as tall as a Kilimanjaro, and 50,000 times as tall as a giraffe.

If you would like to get involved with Ladles of Love Camps Bay Community, volunteers are most welcome. You can find the Ladles of Love Camps Bay Community in the building in Clifton 4th Beach parking lot, every day from 9 am to 1 pm.
