The original soup kitchen opened its doors in June 2008.
All the equipment as well as the buildings was financed from donations from local business and the local community. The original aim of the kitchen was to supply a nourishing meal to the needy community of Gansbaai. The 1st priority of the kitchen is to supply nourishing meals to the children and thereafter the elderly and the sick.
The kitchen is currently based in Beverly Hills. The responsibility of cooking the meals is now in the hands of local community. All provisions (bread, meat spices and vegetables) for the meals are provided by S.H.A.R.E.
In March 2009, the Department of Social Development assisted with the funding of the kitchen. However, since 1st April 2012, we have been totally reliant on the generosity of local businesses and the local community.
In 2015 we opened a “second hand shop” in town, from which we supply reasonably priced household goods and clothing to the public. All stock is donated by the community. The purpose of this project, is to generate funds for S.H.A.R.E. Because of the bold purple paint used, the shop has become fondly known as “Die Pers Winkel".
