Since the start of the national lock-down in South African until now there has been a daily moving target as to when businesses like ours will be able to open. Whether it will be food delivery only or turning our stores into bottle shops. The future for restaurants, bars and pub seem grim with many people out of work and the hunger crisis growing.
Beerhouse has taken the firm stance that we will not go down without a fight. We WILL open again to serve the thirsty the widest variety of beer under one roof again.
In the meantime we simply cannot stand by while our communities and staff grow desperate and hungry.
Creating an operational Soup Kitchen
As of Tuesday, 21st April 2020, we have turned our kitchen into an operational soup kitchen. We are calling our staff in two at a time on a rotation to earn a daily cash wage and take some food home to feed their families.
The food that we are making is being donated to Ladles of Love. Every Monday and Thursday we are making between 400 – 600 liters of soup that gets picked up by The Hebron Project that distributes it in the Ocean View community near Kommetjie, Cape Town.
Thus far Beerhouse has partnered with Tygerberg Hills Lions club to help raise the starting funds to get this project off the ground.
A special thank you to all of our donors thus far:
Tygerberg Hills Lions – R3 000
Merriman Lions – R600 & 420L of frozen prepackaged meals
Sgt. Pepper – 5kg of springbok meat
Onomo Hotel – 100 pieces of chicken 1/4, veggies and fruit
Just Us Productions – R1 000
Food Lovers Market N1 City Value Center – 10% discounted on food we bought (value of R430 discount)
Elke Jorberg – R1 000
Helen Martin Clark – R1 000
Max Hutchinson – R5 000
As a result of these donations we are able to keep our kitchen operational for a week to produce a minimum of 100L (200 meals) of soup per day.
How can you help?
There are two ways that you can support our kitchen:
1. Cash Donations
Donate via our #YellowFund on BackaBuddy, we will use this money to purchase food supply, wages for the staff who are working each day and other operational costs of running a soup kitchen (kitchen gas, petrol, cleaning products, etc)
2. Food Donations
Grains, vegetables, meat, spices, etc
These food donations can be dropped off at Beerhouse on Long, 219 Long Street, Cape Town CBD, Monday – Friday.
We will also accept any other donation that can be used in food parcels, hygiene parcels, etc.
3. Equipment Donations
20L – 50L containers to transport food from Beerhouse to Ladles of Love
50L – 100L cooking pots
Gloves & cleaning chemicals (also operational expenses)
You can email email@example.com or call 083 503 5118 to find out more about how you can get involved.
Since we are all stuck in lock-down the team at Beerhouse would like to invite you to some of our lock-down online events.
