The Festive season is tough for families who cannot afford food and gifts at Christmas time. This is why we at Ladles of Love are on a mission to feed as many people as we can a special festive meal, with the added treat of delicious Christmas cookies.
When we are surrounded by holiday season abundance, it’s hard to imagine what it is like to worry about how to feed your family their next meal. Sadly, this is the stark reality for millions of people in South Africa as the hunger situation is a crisis.
We as a non-profit in the food relief sector are currently procuring and providing food for over 35,000 people a day via our network of 200 soup kitchens and are reliant purely on the generosity of our donors and supporters.
The extraordinary Woman Warriors who run community soup kitchens in our network would love nothing more than to serve a lunch, which is full of nutritious deliciousness and be able to provide a beautiful Christmas treat for everyone.
This was the thinking behind our Christmas cookies in all kinds of shapes that are decorated to bring messages of hope, joy, and love. The good news is, if you’re in Cape Town or Johannesburg and would like to help decorate and ice the cookies, you can volunteer and join us for a creative session, having fun doing good for good. It’s down to all of us to make it happen.
