Thank you, your donation will make a difference in someone’s life today.
Please ensure you add your name and email address in the reference section so that we can get in touch and thank you. Please note: All donations are currently being administered by our Partner NGO, Community Chest.
Restaurants who are cooking for the needy – either in their communities or by supplying feeding schemes – can apply for grants from the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund. If they meet the criteria they receive funding in line with the number of meals they’re producing every day. This funding helps them buy food to cook and to pay their staff.
Donations will also go towards the Eat Out Food School to train and upskill historically disadvantaged South African youth in order to increase their chance for employment in the restaurant industry.
Your donation goes into the fund and the funds are distributed to qualifying restaurants and individuals who make successful applications as well as towards the overall operations of the Food School. If you’d prefer to help a particular restaurant or staff member, visit their page on Eat Out to see if they have loaded a funding or Back-a-Buddy project.
Yes, your donation is tax-deductible and you will receive a Section 18A certificate that you can submit with your tax return.
If you’d like to donate food or goods, please click on the Donate Goods button. We’ll try to connect you with restaurants who are in need or alternatively they can also be put to good use in the Food School’s practical training sessions. You can decide. Many restaurants as well as the Food School may also value your time. If you would like to volunteer your time to assist in a feeding, we suggest you contact your nearby restaurants directly and should you wish to volunteer your knowledge/skills to the School, please get in touch with us.
