Ladles of Love is a volunteer-run soup kitchen and feeding program for people in need. Since inception in July 2014 where we started with one kitchen each Tuesday, we've expanded significantly. We now serve 3 meals a week without fail to the homeless community.
Now we are expanding into primary schools - focusing on providing nutritious, fresh food to young learners coming to school without a meal of their own. We now feed approx 760 students lunch each week.
All food is vegetarian and is freshly prepared in the kitchen of Doppio Zero, St George’s Mall. The soup is a thick wholesome broth of potatoes, butternut, carrots, lentils and rice with a careful blend of spices - cooked over a number of hours to create a delicious meal.
Eduskeight is the only organisation in Africa that provides communities with a after school youth development program through skateboarding, where by we assist youth with academics, life skills and skateboarding lessons.
In 1986 a nurse from Sedgefield and a doctor from Knysna started working together to help those who needed care at home. There was no name, no office, no funding, no mission statement, simply two people working together to care for others. This was the start of the Knysna Sedgefield Hospice – people working together to care.
Peggy Grinaker donated a house in Hunters Home in 1990 after Hospice cared for her husband, Ola. This is still the Hospice Headquarters.
In July 2002 KSH received Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa (HPCA) accreditation and became an official Integrated Community-based Home Care (ICHC)2 site. Council of Health Services Accreditation of SA (COHSASA) granted full accreditation status in May 2006. Re-accreditation was achieved in August 2008 and November 2011.
In 2010 it was recognized that no palliative care services were delivered in Wilderness and it was decided that to extend the services from Sedgefield to Wilderness.
Knysna Sedgefield Hospice continues to enjoy the support of many committed volunteers and of the community of Knysna and Sedgefield and adapt to the changing needs of the community.
