Our charity is growing


Our charity initiative – the Stretch Kitchen – has taken off so beautifully. We host the pop-up soup kitchen every wednesday evening in Cape Town, in the McKenzie Street park. It’s great seeing how many people and companies have come forward to offer their help – our team is growing all the time and together we are doing good things.

One huge help we’ve received has been from Guy Thorp, who owns Spar Kloof Street. He’s taken over the sourcing of the food as well as the making of the soup! Each week he presents something delicious, different, and nutritious, asking for nothing more than the enjoyment of seeing hungry people fed.

The great guys from Cape Cup give us boxes of bio-degradable cups to serve our soup in, and we have a great team of volunteers offering their time every Wednesday evening to help out and hang out with our homeless community, and just make it an enjoyable evening for everybody – Its really rewarding seeing friendships being built.

Thanks to all our volunteers who give of their time, week after week, to keep this initiative alive 🙂
