Mensch Mandela Day — building food resilience in Langa

Mensch Mandela Day was a massive success this year, held for the first time in three years, live in-person as well as online!

Over 160 people attending the event either in person or online, or watched the event recording. Together with their partner beneficiary organisations Mensch has raised almost R60,000 so far! On the day together, over 120 people made their way to Langa, and made 500 litres of soup for 1500 people to enjoy on Mandela Day, providing R12 000 in income to local Langa farmers for the produce for the soup! 

A huge thank you to our beneficiary partners SA Urban Food and Farming Trust and Ikhaya Le Langa, and our community partners the JDC Joint (supported by the Horwitz Family Trust), the Cape SA Jewish Board of Deputies and the United Jewish Campaign Cape Town. Not forgetting the farmers themselves for producing the delicious and nutritious veggies! | Mensch on Facebook | Mensch on Instagram
