Eddie’s Soup Kitchenon August 16, 2009
Eddie has been with us since the hotel opened. It was his dream to be able to provide the kids in his street with a hot meal once a week. So, Eddie and his wife Margaret set about starting a small project from their modest home in Lotus River.
Each Thursday afternoon after school, Eddie and Margaret serve soup to about 80 children. We go along and invite work colleges to join us who are willing to bring a ray of sunshine into these kids’ lives.
This week, Lientjies (from Camelot Spa) came along with the intention to face paint the girls. To her surprise, the boys were first in the line. She was kept very occupied and the kids loved her glowing smile.
This is a community project that The Table Bay supports and we have plans to grow this into a daily provision for the kids and families in Eddie’s street. We need companies and people to help us with regular supplies of food for the soup, much needed funds and help us make a dream come true.
