Soup Kitchen Helps

The soup kitchen Ladles of Love feeds the homeless of Cape Town, has feeding schemes for schools and now they are planning to feed the displaced in Hout Bay


Watching the community and multiple organisations come together to help the people affected by the fire is overwhelming! We have reported on many different people and organisations who are working to make a difference to the community.

Ladles of Love is a soup kitchen based in the Cape Town CBD, they have decided to help the people who lost their homes by feeding them. While non perishables and other donations are absolutely fantastic the residents are in need of warm meals while they rebuild.

Ladles of Love has posted on their Facebook page that they will be heading out to go and feed the residents of the destroyed settlement. This is the second time they plan to head into the community. They hosted a soup kitchen a last night, 13 March 2017 and served 250 bowls of soup with fresh baked bread.

“Ladles of Love shared the love in IY, Hout Bay today…. we served about 250 meals!!! It went super quick! Special thanks to Daniele Diliberto for the soup, To the Chicken Shop and IYO for donating bread!!! And huge thanks to all the volunteers!!!!”

“It’s been a hectic week since the fire in Hout Bay at the weekend as we do our best to support the affected communities and those working to assist them. We’ll be running another soup kitchen out there tomorrow along with making care packages from your donations…”

Donations can be dropped off at Doppio Zero, Mandela Rhodes Place, Cape Town Famiglia. Doppio offers up its kitchen 3 days a week to the Soup Kitchen so that they can prep and cook meals they distribute. The restaurant is also taking part in the donation drive and posted this to their Facebook page,

“We’re doing our best to support the affected communities of IY in Hout Bay. Please help us in making a difference…”

“We, in partnership with Ladles of Love are collecting donations of food, toiletries, clothing and baby formula to make care packages which we will distribute via the teams in charge in Hout Bay”

All donations must be dropped off by 3pm on Wednesday 15th March 2017

“It’s times like these we need to pull together and do what we can to show our support for this community.”
