Love Story has played a vital role in keeping bellies full during the lockdown; now, their Love Sandwiches initiative will do the same for school children.


Port Elizabeth, South Africa (28 January 2021) – Before the pandemic, Love Story regularly fed up to 300 homeless people five times a week. That was just one of the initiatives the organisation had set up in the city since being formed in 2012 to help the needy.

Love Story is a non-profit organisation that seeks to meet the needs of the local community. They operate in and around Port Elizabeth and are involved in a variety of projects, e.g. soup kitchens, creche support, clothing/toy distribution, hospital handouts, etc.

Love Story founder Elaine Watson used her network to bolster support when the pandemic hit. Since then, they have managed to feed thousands.

One of the projects that has made a massive impact on the community is their Love sandwich drive. The drive allows them to supply bread to schools throughout the Port Elizabeth area.

“The Eastern Cape has the highest number of children living in poverty. For many this means one daily ration.
Love sandwiches supplies bread to underprivileged schools in Port Elizabeth.

We need your help!
