Rotarians enjoyed fellowship catching up on stories missed while preparing hearty meals for Cape Towns most vulnerable citizens.
A meal should not be a luxury or a right it is a basic need that we all can solve together. So next time you drive past a lady, man or child who is homeless ask when last did you go without food for a day. Thank you all who volunteers daily to provide food for those that cannot feed themselves.
