Soup kitchens play a vital role in feeding those in need. Plett Volunteers in co-operation with a number of local restaurants currently support over fifty soup kitchens, either by providing groceries and ingredients so that meals can be prepared by the kitchen itself, or by cooking meals in bulk using restaurant kitchen facilities. In total this scheme has at times delivered up to 72.000 meals to people in need during a single week.
We monitor the weekly output and record these numbers in our data base. Here is a breakdown of soup kitchen meals per area recorded for the week 15-21 June 2020 (data capture: 22 June 2020):
