500,000th Plate of Food for FFL Cape Town

FoodForLife : March 19, 2020 11:48 am : capetown, Uncategorized

On Saturday 14th March 2020, Food for Life Cape Town visited our friends in Hanover Park.

Sveta cooked the delicious 3,400 plates of food.  BIG thanks to our lovely family of volunteers and community co-ordinators, who helped distribute the meals with love and devotion:  Rateeqah, Pranlal, Laxmi, Nimla, Radhika, Anjali and Darshan.

Today, we distributed our 500,000th plate of food since 2013 (i.e. half a million) . For our small team, this is quite a significant milestone. We hope and pray that with God’s Grace, and the continued support of our volunteers, donors, distribution partners and well-wishers, we can continue our humble service for many more years to come.  It’s taken us 7 years to reach half a million, and our aim is to reach the next half million within 3 years from now. We humbly beg for your blessings and support in this regard.

A word of thanks to our sponsors for today, Amit Raga (who celebrated his birthday last week, and who’s also got married Saturday – WOOHOO…CONGRATS and all the best in the next chapter of your life) and Laxmi Rama (who also celebrated her 40th birthday last Friday).  THANK YOU ALL .

So, another great serve-out. Until next time… take care and lotsa love…

Sveta cooked the delicious 3,400 plates of food.  We had the immense honour and privilege to host 2 VERY special guests:  His Grace Agnidev Prabhu (Trinidad) and His Grace Medhavi Prabhu (USA).  What a special day it was with the presence of these 2 larger-than-life personalities.  BIG thanks to our lovely family of volunteers and community co-ordinators, who helped distribute the meals with love and devotion:  Mama Jack, Phumla, Nilesh, Sveta, Shyam, Jade, Avinash, Gita Gamya, Darshan, Visvambara, Nandanandini, Mahesh, Nkosinath, Nilacala, Caitanya, Rahul and Radha Kripa.

We also sent food to Haven shelters, Oasis Place, and a number of other areas in Cape Town.

If you’d like to be part of our family, please don’t hesitate to join us. Please also get in touch with us if you’d like to get involved at management level – we meet once a fortnight to discuss strategy and logistics. Also, we need help with media, publicity, marketing, fundraising, etc. We currently require another van, new food crates, a new kitchen site and equipment, someone to cook for us during the week….so there are MANY ways in which you could assist.

So, another great serve-out. Until next time… take care and lotsa love…
