Knead Bakery helps feed hundreds of hungry people through bread donation drive

Written by: Qama Qukula

Thousands of loaves of bread have been donated to various communities such as Vrygrond, Langa, and Marina da Gama thanks to customers who are supporting the bakery's initiative.

Knead Bakery is running a Donate a Loaf campaign, where customers can donate a bread for R20. Click here to donate.

The business is working with various local projects such as the Isabelo Foundation, the NGO Where Rainbows Meet, the newly-formed Cape Town SoupaGroup, as well as philanthropists such as chef Liam Tomlin and Jules from GoodLuck.

Ryan Faull, Owner of Knead Bakery, says there has been a great amount of goodwill shown by South Africans who are facing tough times.

Customers are able to donate a loaf of bread which we will produce and get to the communities that need it.
