FillaPot Programme

We created a way to gift and share food with love over the festive season. R200 fills a pot with enough food to feed 100 children. With your help, together we can fill 10 000 pots and serve 1 million hot meals!

December is a time of hope and a time of joy but while our children are hoping for presents like new bicycles, gadgets, or computer games, many kids are dreaming of the gift of food.  If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it is the importance of sharing and caring – we are one community, and whilst many of us are blessed with abundance, there are so many who are not.

We created a way to gift and share food with love over the festive season. It gives us pleasure to launch our new campaign FillaPot – R200 fills a pot with enough food to feed 100 children.

Our aim is to promote a culture of giving and gifting meals to children in need over Christmas time. With your help and that of everyone you know, together we can fill 10 000 pots and serve 1 million nutritious hot meals to people and soup kitchens in need in and around Cape Town during the festive season.

We aim to spread the love and keep the festive season festive for all in the Mother City during this period. This programme aims not only to help feed our local communities, but also create the awareness of the need for nutritious food for needy families in South Africa.

Who are our charities to donate to for Christmas with Fill A Pot?

Our network of beneficiaries are all located in and around the Cape Peninsula. Each beneficiary are individually run NPOs that manages its own community soup kitchen. Together, we are helping them feed around 30 000 people every day. As a result, Ladles of Love supplies each of them with bulk food supply- mainly fresh produce, assorted non-perishables and sandwiches.

These beneficiaries are located in the Cape’s poorest communities. Providing food to their immediate communities is their priority, especially as more than half the line (around 70%) comprises of children.

How can you get involved with Fill A Pot?

While FillaPot helps provide food to our immediate communities, consequently our campaign activities also hope to create awareness to raise donations to buy food for needy families in South Africa.

Despite the campaign period for FillaPot running over the Festive period, the programme runs throughout the year. Donations to Fill A Pot and its wonderful network of charities to donate to for Christmas will run throughout the year. Your money will go towards helping us feed 1 million people to offer hope and inspiration.

Your monetary donations will go to securing better and more bulk produce to supply to our soup kitchens. We also encourage partnerships and sponsorships with your businesses for the festive campaign period.
