Homeless citizens of Cape Town were treated to pots of hearty, warm soup recently, thanks to a group of students from Camps Bay High School.
The teens helped make soup for the homeless community seeking shelter at Haven Night Shelter in Green Point, The Good Things Guy reported.
The group of students gave the Ladles of Love Soup Kitchen, which usually operates at the shelter, a break for a night last week, and got cracking on filling bellies with hearty food.
Briefly.co.za found out that Camps Bay High School managed to raise over R12 000 for the ingredients to make the soup.
On top of this, the project also served as the launch of the school’s brand-new Consumer Studies Classroom.
“This was a great opportunity for our pupils to serve our community and a wonderful launch for our brand new state-of-art Consumer Studies Classroom,” Dave de Korte, the school’s Principal proudly declared.
The project is part of a greater initiative where the Camps Bay High School students help homeless citizens of Cape Town, Briefly.co.za gleaned.
Recently, the students used recycled materials to make sleeping bags for those without access to shelter.
The soup kitchen project was a roaring success and the students look forward to regularly serving the city’s homeless in this way.
“Due to the generosity of our families, we are able to take over soup kitchens regularly and plan to repeat this again soon,” Principal de Korte said.
