Mother City Kitchen is not a simple handout that enables someone to live on the streets.
It’s a piece in a bigger puzzle that aims for holistic solutions. Even a small donation to us will go much further than a handout, which usually doesn’t lead to change or supports an addiction.
We work with other organisations that are addressing the root issues, ensuring students are fed and educated, that school dropouts are given opportunities and generally that the meal support is delivered in the right places.
High unemployment rates in South Africa are a constant issue which isn’t solved by not feeding someone. Many people don’t have the skills to get work, nor the resources to get those skills. They may only earn enough through begging to feed and shelter their family and they feel if they go to a shelter, their kids won’t eat. If we feed people and their children, they will be more free to learn and progress. Everything #startswithameal
