In celebration of Mandela Day on July 16, SPAR Eastern Cape and Love Story combine their assets every year to host a City Feed lunch in Port Elizabeth.
Their commitment to honour South Africa’s former president, the late Nelson Mandela, results in a hot meal being provided to about 200 homeless people.
In addition to supplying a meal, tea and coffee is served on arrival and a treat is added.
SPAR EC was introduced to the concept by Elaine Watson of Love Story, an organisation which manages feeding schemes in the city centre throughout the year.
With the retailer providing the ingredients, Love Story prepares the meals and volunteers from SPAR Eastern Cape’s distribution centre are used to serve those in attendance.
Date: July 18 (Port Elizabeth)
