Doorway to Dignity keeps tummies of the less fortunate warm at Ferndale Bible Chapel

The makings of a great pot of soup that will be served to displaced people.

What goes best with the cold winter days? A fantastic bowl of soup, of course, there could be nothing better.

Unfortunately, many in the community do not have the luxury of tucking into their favourite soup daily.

Mark Freeman and Daniel May prepare soup while sharing a laugh together.

 

Potjies are prepared to be enjoyed by displaced people.

 

Mari-Louise Beach, Roz Tobianskay and Michelle Beach chop up some green peppers to feed displaced people.

So, on 12 May Doorway to Dignity made sure to keep the tummies of those less fortunate warm at Ferndale Bible Chapel where they held their Pots of Hope outreach.

“This is a pop-up restaurant that uses a potjiekos format and we invite people who are living on the streets or homeless to the restaurant and they are served by waiters and treated to a dignified dining experience,” said Doorway to Dignity CEO Trevor Webster.

There were about 100 displaced people invited to enjoy a hot bowl of soup and food. People from churches and residents associations helped prepare the food.

Also lending a helping hand was Nosh Food Rescue, an organisation which saves food waste that is traditionally sent to landfill and donates it to charities.

Webster added that the whole purpose of the outreach was to get the community involved as it was a community-driven initiative and it was when people worked together that a problem could be solved.
