Franschhoek Wine Valley

Helping Hand in An Hour of Need – Together Franschhoek

In this ever-changing environment, Together Franschhoek, symbolises the  strength in community collaboration that the Franschhoek Valley is known for!

Assisting the community in establishing food distribution points throughout the valley, through the supply of fresh produce and ingredients, the installation of handwashing stations, and ensuring that social distancing measures and guidelines are in place, the Together Franschhoek team led by Ashley Bauer, with the help and guidance of community leaders, NGO’s and other key stakeholders, continuously assesses and re-assesses the needs of our community with food relief remaining a primary focus.

This mammoth operation is made possible through the team of volunteers from local businesses and residents, the wonderful NPO’s and the generosity and support of people like you!

Under the guidance of Foliage Restaurant’s Executive Chef, Chris Erasmus, and Isabelo’s Margot Janse,  a group of Franschhoek chefs, are ensuring that no hungry mouth goes unfed in the Franschhoek Valley.

Although there have been some very generous contributions since the unit was launched, they do rely on continued support. Just R250 will go a long way in sustaining this operation.

Franco headed by Rian Coetzee, the Isabelo Feeding Scheme, headed by Margot Janse and the Lions Ladies Club Franschhoek, headed by Lodine Maske, have offered their fundraising facilities to assist in this regard.

To follow their efforts follow them on Facebook.
