Based in Observatory in Cape Town, Big Momma's has been relying mainly on deliveries during lockdown and have utilised their open kitchen to help supply hot meals to a child youth care centre in the area. Through donations from friends, family and customers, and with the support of the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund, the Big Momma's team have continued to support the community with their feeding scheme. Eat Out chats to owner Tawanda Mushapaidze about running both a delivery service as well as a soup kitchen. Watch the full interview below.

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.
