Cape Town team volunteers to help feed the hungry

Like so many other countries, South Africa has been hard hit by the pandemic and the national lockdown. Many people have lost their livelihoods and the number of people going to bed hungry increases every day. During these hard times, MACS decided to give financial support to the “Mother Soup Project”.

Yesterday, our Cape Town team was happy to chop vegetables for 7000 litres of soup, which is cooked every day. Over a million meals have so far been sent out to communities in need.

The “Mother Soup Project” was born out of the realisation that the Woodstock brewery's kettles are amongst the largest in Cape Town. During the national lockdown no sale of alcohol was permitted, so the brewing equipment was quickly repurposed to cook nutritious soup for those in need.

In difficult times such as these, we all have to stand together and help each other where we can. A little can go a very long way.
