Restaurants offering free meals for students and those affected by Cape Town fire

A fast-moving fire started on Table Mountain in Cape Town on Sunday morning and blazed its way towards UCT – damaging the iconic restaurant at Rhodes Memorial as well as historic landmark buildings at the university. The fire has spread to parts of Devil’s Peak with countless people being forced to evacuate their homes. 4000 students and staff were evacuated from UCT Campus and adjoining residential halls on Sunday.

Relief efforts are ongoing and there are a number of Cape Town restaurants that have come forward to offer meals to those who have been displaced.
