Winter is coming!

Personal message

This winter, Breaking Bread will continue to work with as many homeless people in Observatory and Salt River as possible.

While most of us are hoping for more rain, some of the most vulnerable members of our community will feel the effects of the colder weather conditions. It isn't possible for everyone to find space in the shelters in Cape Town, and many will face the prospect of enduring each night without something to keep them warm.

Breaking Bread actively works with hundreds of people every day by providing a meal via our Feeding Programme. We're still looking for some suitable premises, but this doesn't deter our tireless co-director Sheradia, who serves everyone from her own home in Salt River.

This winter, please help us continue to provide some necessary provisions for the people we work with every day.

The following types of donations would be much appreciated –

Blankets – any type

Sleeping bags



Food supplies


Any money donations made will go towards the food supplies needed for our Feeding Programme, which always sees an increase in numbers during the winter months.

Even if you are unable to donate money or items, please share our page with your family and friends to help us raise awareness for our organisation, and the incredible people we work with.

Do you want to become more involved with our organisation? Backabuddy have a fantastic platform for people who wish to raise money for an organisation or cause by becoming a Champion.

All you then do is follow this link for further information. You will then be asked to complete a form which is returned to the Backabuddy team. They will get in touch with you to discuss what being a Backabuddy Champion involves, but the type of fundraising you decide to do is entirely up to you.

If you like the sound of becoming a Backabuddy Champion for Breaking Bread, but you're not sure what to do next, please feel free to contact us, and we'll discuss the various fundraising events we've used in our past campaigns.

Breaking Bread Community Development is an Organisation that aims to help the Homeless and destitute. We currently run Soup Sessions, where we feed the Homeless in Observatory – we don’t just serve food, we have conversations, we sing, we dance and we get to know one another.
