Guided by field workers within the City’s Social Development, we focus on feeding schemes in vulnerable communities.
For example, Connie Marcus’ community kitchen Saam Werk in Atlantis. Connie’s provides nutritional meals for some 300 children. Her aim is to try to prevent migration away from their homes and communities to seek ‘income and sustenance’ on our streets. Also to inspire youth to excel at school, sport and also chess competitions rather than be attracted by gang activity.

Pat Pillay-Louw started her community kitchen in memory of her late husband. Pat has a brilliant career yet finds time, with the assistance of three cooks, to produce nutritious meals.
She invests in her own NPO and specifically selects to support areas where there are no others assisting. During the week her team prepares large quantities for community leaders in Cape Town to collect and at the weekends she serves at her own community kitchen in Kensington.
Quoting from a recent post by Pat: ‘RPJ Helping Hands has handed out groceries, vegetables, candles, sweet packets, clothing and shoes, dog food, toiletries and blankets over the last months.
Each week we endeavour to reach out into new communities where poverty and hardship is so heartbreaking. Our kitchen is a joyful hub of positive energy and laughter.’

The Homestead was established in 1982 to prevent children living, begging or working on the streets due to extreme family environments.
It has five Prevention and Early Intervention Programme centres. Through these centres, children receive psychosocial support and a chance to have normal growth.
The programme fosters positive development of children living in dysfunctional family environments or exposed to harmful experiences. Placement of children in residential facilities is the last resort.
The Homestead has two Child and Youth Care Centres - Bridge CYCC in Khayelitsha and LaunchPad Transitional CYCC in Observatory which care for boys until they realise their full potential.
