Raise funds for us

Turn your business into a Ladles of Love social warrior and fundraise as many meals as you can!

Back in 2017, Stats SA estimated that a frightening 6,8 million South Africans experience hunger. The global pandemic has inflated these figures dramatically. Ladles of Love aims to support these vulnerable families to help create a sustainable and healthy society that helps everyone to prosper.

#HumanityAgainstHunger

It’s easier than you might think to raise funds. The opportunities are endless, and every bit helps. Your donations have helped us grow from a single soup kitchen to a network that helps to provide sustainable access to nutritious meals for thousands of people in need daily.

In 2020 alone, we served over 10 million meals. Every bowl placed in the hand of someone desperately hungry is an incredible act of kindness.

By raising funds for Ladles of Love, you help us sustain and grow our efforts to reach even more communities and children in need – sustainable solutions that can help provide the necessary food security that is so desperately needed.

Fundraiser ideas to inspire you

You can raise funds for charity in any way you can imagine. The sky’s the limit. We’re proud to showcase some of the brilliant ways local businesses have collaborated with Ladles of Love:

Pesto Princess

Pesto Princess is a perfect fit with Ladles of Love, as they make delicious, healthy soups just like us. They launched their annual #BuyOneGiveOne campaign four years ago, and have run it every year since – for every soup sold, they donate R5 towards our Soup Kitchens.

Exact Clothing & The Fix (The Foschini Group)

The Foschini Group has been working with Ladles of Love for some time now in a number of ways. This collaboration includes them sponsoring a feeding scheme at one of the schools on The Munch Club initiative by Ladles of Love. During the lockdown, they launched a fundraising campaign selling face masks, and part of the proceeds was donated to us.

Everyone benefits
