Give Responsibly Supported by

The Give Responsibly initiative, endorsed by the Stellenbosch Municipality, produces coupons which can be exchanged for a nutritious meal or a night’s stay at the Stellenbosch Night Shelter. It is an easy and effective way to help. Simply buy paper-based coupons from participating shops and pass them onto to homeless people instead of offering money.

Stellenbosch Feeding in Action


When you encounter people in town who need help, it’s often hard to know what, to do. Sometimes it’s easier to look away than to engage –  avoiding awkward or uncomfortable exchanges completely. Perhaps you’re irritated by the intrusion on your day; overwhelmed by the sheer number of people in need; or want to help, but unsure of the best way to make a difference.  

This is exactly what prompted Stellenbosch resident Charl Reyneke, to initiate an effective alternative to helping people who have turned to begging in order to survive. Today the project is coordinated and managed by the Stellenbosch Night Shelter.

In Stellenbosch, free lunch is available (Monday – Friday) at the Bergzicht Taxi Rank at 12h00.
