Give back to those who give

2016-09-06 06:00

APART from keeping customers happy and tummies full, the team at My Chef love to give back. They are constantly on the lookout for individuals and teams who make a difference in the lives of residents.
The My Chef team visited St Theresa’s Home, SPCA and Bobbi Bear, and recently St Martins.

St Martin’s Diocesan Home for Children was this month’s recipients of their surprise food delivery.
They delivered a selection of tasty treats for the children, made up of mini bunny chows, cheese and tomato croissants, butternut and feta wraps as well as cupcakes and tomato tarts.

The home, which was founded in 1897, is one of the longest serving children’s homes in South Africa, that cares for abused, orphaned, abandoned and neglected children.
The home provides an essential and important service in the community as well as outreach projects that help children in need.

Principal Ishara Poodhun and her team do great work and overcome countless obstacles every day.
Their pay-off line “in a world full of people who couldn’t care less, be somebody who couldn’t care more” is something to remember and act on.

Jenni Jackson, Blue Strawberry and My Chef owner, said: “We try our best to set aside time to give back to those who do good and feel it’s important to show our appreciation to those in the field who give back to the community every day.”

My Chef is asking the community to help them select a worthy cause dedicated to women, by emailing your suggestion to as well as posting onto our Facebook page using #MyChefCares.

By highlighting a worthy charity, we then have the opportunity to give back the way we know how – by making meals for community heroes at their place of aid.
