The Covid-19 Pandemic: if there was ever a time for finding versatility and strength within us, this is it.

South Africa finds itself in a uniquely terrifying position where the Coronavirus is concerned, given the vast numbers of HIV and TB sufferers amongst our citizens, and much of the population already living in poverty, beneath 'the breadline'.  Whilst the schools are closed and Isabelo's core role of feeding Franschhoek's school kids is on pause, we are turning our resources and skills into supporting the newly formed effort 'Together Franschhoek' (formerly 'Franschhoek Disaster Management')


This team and a group of awesome volunteers initially started production for a food distribution initiative providing weekly food packs for impoverished families and elderly folk in the area.  They have now turned their focus to the supply and prep of produce for 14 local community food kitchens, at which hundreds of hungry mouths arrive every, single day.  

Isabelo has donated all of our outstanding school food reserves, and chef Margot herself, along with other prominent local chefs, are helping to prep and cook for the food packs and food kitchens each week at Chris Erasmus's Foliage Restaurant,   amongst others.




The initiative desperately needs funding, as well as food supplies and equipment.  If you would like to

donate funds, please do so through the Isabelo donation channels above. otherwise contact margot@isabelocharity.com

Many, many thanks for making a difference. Stay safe xxx
