Mobilised to feed the hungry

Says Werner Hayward of Eat Out: “We’ve launched the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund 

so that empty kitchens and talented people can be mobilised to feed the hungry. The fund is offering financial support to these restaurants to help them pay their staff and to buy food – to keep them in business so they can keep putting food on the table for hungry families. We hope to help them remain operational, so they can reopen their doors as viable businesses when the time comes.”

Nederburg’s global marketing manager, Jackie Olivier explains: “It’s common knowledge that restaurants in SA have taken a big knock under the lockdown constraints. Although this is an extremely difficult time for the local wine industry during which no trading at all is permitted, we want to do what we can to support our partners in the restaurant industry. It’s about playing our part in feeding those who are very vulnerable right now and in desperate need of nutrition.”

Donations are tax deductible

The Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund is administered by Community Chest (NPO and PBO) and donations are tax deductible. Eat Out receives no commercial benefit from the donations – Eat Out and New Media are donating time, the team, brand, running costs and resources to this initiative at no cost, so that all money donated can go directly to qualifying restaurants.

To date, the fund has received contributions of more than R1 000 000, with R980 000 paid out to restaurants thus far. Click here to donate
