Pesto Princess serves ladles of love this winter

As temperatures drop, Pesto Princess has enacted a heartfelt collaboration with Ladles of Love, a soup kitchen based in Cape Town which feeds those who are homeless and currently living on the streets. For each Pesto Princess soup sold, a donation is made to Ladles of Love towards the cost of a hot meal.


Creative director at Pesto Princess, Kathleen Quillinan says: ‘Last year the heartwarming journey with Ladles of Love began. For each Pesto Princess soup sold, we donated a portion of the profit to Ladles of Love which was used to cover the cost of a nourishing, hot meal for someone in need. In total we contributed towards 20 000 meals and our hope is that this year, with our ongoing collaboration and with your support, we can contribute to 60 000 meals! Buy one. Give one. Please help us to spread the message and make a difference to those who simply do not have access to a hot meal this winter’

Ladles of Love

The volunteers who work for Ladles of Love feed approximately 2000 people a week at three venues around Cape Town. It’s more than just providing nourishing soup for those who would otherwise go hungry. It’s about dignity, respect and creating a generous, kind world in which we all want to live. Kate Haywood trustee of the Ladles of Love Foundation says: ‘We are proud to be partnering with the awesome team at Pesto Princess on the #BuyOneFeedOne campaign again in 2018. We’re currently feeding more than 2000 vulnerable people every single week and we couldn’t do this without collaborations such as this. It’s an honour to work with a company as passionate as we are about making a real difference to the lives of people in need – through our shared passion of delicious, healthy food’.
