Food for Life Cape Town (FFL CT) has recently affiliated with Food for Life South Africa, and subsequently been tasked with expanding our presence and positive impact in Cape Town and surrounds. In order to achieve this, FFL CT is dependent on donations – to date, we have been blessed with food and money donations from some very generous individuals.

We have recognised the necessity, though, of approaching corporates for sponsorship. This has to be approached with much sensitivity and diplomacy. FFL CT has strived to be perceived as a non-sectarian organisation, and as a reward, we have been successful in our first corporate sponsorship application – FFL CT was recently awarded a R10,000 donation from Airports Company South Africa’s (ACSA) Cape Town branch, in the form of a Makro shopping voucher. This was due in large part to ACSA employee Balkrishna Dilraj, who nominated us as his preferred charity. FFL CT’s Nilesh Luckhoo and Driti Gihwala joined ACSA representative Gareth Bain on Friday 6th September 2013 for some ‘retail therapy’, stocking up on much-needed equipment for our FFL kitchen.
May this be the start of something auspicious and beneficial to all local communities.
