As a restaurant, can I still operate a relief kitchen and receive funding from the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund?
Yes! South Africa has long had a food shortage and many people go hungry every day. As our economy slowly reopens, we believe it’s important not to lose sight of the goodwill that has arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you continue to operate fully as a relief kitchen or whether you decide to use some of your resources to run a delivery service while still providing meals to those in need, restaurants can still apply for funding from the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund. All funding is subject to terms and conditions and is dependent on how many meals for the needy are produced each day. To apply for funding, go here.
We need everyone’s help to support our ailing restaurant industry and to feed the hungry in our country, so we also ask every diner to consider making a donation. Click here to donate.
Thank you, your donation will make a difference in someone’s life today.
