The soup kitchen Ladles of Love feeds the homeless of Cape Town and also has feeding schemes for schools. Recently they went on a shopping spree to the value of R10,000.
Cape Town, South Africa – Ladles of Love is a volunteer-run soup kitchen and feeding programme for people in need. The soup kitchen was first started in July 2014 in one kitchen each Tuesday but over the years, has expanded significantly. They now serve three meals a week within the Cape Town homeless community.
They also expanded their feeding scheme into primary schools to provide nutritious, fresh food to young learners who often attend school without a meal of their own. They feed approximately 760 students each week.
They prepare all vegetarian meals in the kitchen of Doppio Zero, St George’s Mall. The soup is a thick, wholesome broth of potatoes, butternut, carrots, lentils and rice with a careful blend of spices – cooked over several hours to create a delicious meal.
Recently, the organisation were gifted R10,000 from Shoprite and Take My Hand, an organisation that raises funds and awareness for charities around South Africa.
“We stocked up on pap, lentils, veggies, juice, rice, pasta and more – we had trolleys filled to the brim and we still have R3000 left to spend.
Absolutely incredible – thank you so much to @shopritesa and @takemyhand.tv for choosing us! You guys rock”
They filled an entire trolley with stock and managed to save a big chunk for a rainy day. The food items and leftover money will go a long way to supporting the homeless through the cold and wet Cape Town winters.
