soup kitchen

Charity dedicated to bettering the lives of the Port Elizabeth homeless reach out to the community for help with fresh veggies for the soup kitchen.


Port Elizabeth, South Africa – Soup Kitchens often receive donations of food, mostly non-perishable items which are guaranteed to last longer. However, they also need fresh foods to add nutritious fibre to their meals. In these instances, food kitchens use donated funds to purchase the fresh items required.

Love Story is a non-profit organisation that seeks to meet the needs of their community through several projects including soup kitchens, creche support, clothing and toy distribution as well as hospital handouts.

Recently they took to social media to ask for a helping hand in feeding the vulnerable people of Port Elizabeth. Their request is for help with fresh ingredients for their soup kitchen.

“The Love Story kitchen is in need of starch and veggies. We need your help so we can continue feeding our friends on the street.

Our main needs are rice and veggies but here is the list of all our ingredients:

  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Cabbage
  • Butternut
  • Onion
  • Samp
  • Beans
  • Soup mix
  • Rice
  • Maize
  • Chicken
  • Tinned pilchards
  • Soya Mince
  • Stock cubes
  • Oil

Any donations can be dropped off at the Love Story office – 30 Albany Road”

With winter in full force, they hope to provide warm meals for the homeless in Port Elizabeth. If you would like to get involved, you can contact the organisation via Facebook here.
