The Hope Exchange’s annual homeless feeding campaign, which kicked off in December, is running until 16 January 2022, which means you can still donate to a good cause!
A collaboration between The Hope Exchange, Ladles of Love and RPJ Helping Hands, #Feed5000 aims to provide more than 15,000 meals to Cape Town’s homeless community from The Hope Exchange premises at 14A Roeland Street in Cape Town.
The campaign was started to address food scarcity for the homeless during the festive period when most of the regular service providers close and the city centre empties, making it harder to find sources of food. The campaign has grown significantly since 2014 due to the increase in demand from the homeless community, and thanks to the kindness and generosity of supporters who share a commitment to bring comfort to the homeless.

Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 in 2020, the campaign experienced its busiest year serving more than 11,000 meals. But with many more people still finding themselves homeless as a result of economic and other challenges, The Hope Exchange is expecting to serve many more meals – and they need your support to do so.
