This video comes with a warning: if you haven’t already been missing your favourite restaurant, you’ll be dressed and ready to brave the world by the time it ends. And, luckily, from today, 29 June, sit-down restaurants throughout the country will be reopening so you can support them once again.
Thank you to S.Pellegrino for your continued support of our restaurants, both here in South Africa and overseas. Their donation of R200 000 to the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund meant several restaurants could step in to cook hearty meals for those who need them most.
About the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund
COVID-19 has left restaurant kitchens empty and created more and more hungry South Africans. The Fund offers financial support to restaurants that have reopened their kitchens to create food for the needy in their communities. This way it does two things – help feed the vulnerable, while also supporting the industry economically. The fund is administered by Community Chest (an NPO and PBO) and donations are tax-deductible. Eat Out receives no commercial benefit – 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.
