Soup Seva

Today was our annual soup seva in our three school communities. Children and adults each received a meal pack which contained a tub of hot vegetable soup, 4 slices of buttered bread and an orange. In past years all preparation and cooking was done by a team of volunteers in the school kitchen, but due to Covid-19 regulations we decided to ask volunteers to make their favourite vegetable soup at home and deliver it hot to the school in sealed tubs, where the meal packs were made up. This new process also meant that we were able to more than double the amount of meals that were provided, which on a typical cold and wet winters day in Cape Town spread some extra warmth.
