Support with food ingredients

If you wish to provide an in-kind donation instead, we are always in need of the items below (in bulk). You can drop this off at The Hope Exchange, 14a Roeland Street, Cape Town.

We will be using liters of cooking oil. Preferable the kinds which are ideal for cooking at high heat. 

Penne pasta would be great or a similar variant. Goes well with a yummy thick vegetable sauce. Spagetti can be a bit tricky when you cook at the scale we do.

Plain brown or white. It is a stable our clients appreciate.

The perfect meat substitute and allows us to cater for most diets/religious beliefs.

Also, known as legumes. We like them all as they are stuffed with nutrition.

We can always use fresh vegetables. Any kind. They will boast all our meals.
