Port Elizabeth, 17 November 2015 – Local non-profit organisation, Project Hope, has announced the opening of its newly upgraded Project Hope Community Kitchen in Bloemendal. The kitchen, which is set to open on the 25th of November 2015, will act as a food distribution centre for the organisation’s weekly outreaches to communities in the northern areas of Port Elizabeth.
To date, the weekly preparation of more than 400 meals, feeding children across the northern suburbs, has been divided between a number of private homes in the region. Project Hope’s new facilities, provided by The Branch – a Word of Faith Christian Centre Church – and upgraded through a generous donation from The UPS Foundation, will centralise the organisation’s catering operation and alleviate many of its cost and logistics challenges.
A children’s outreach initiative, Project Hope works with children between the ages of three and thirteen and was founded in February 2000. The organisation aims to address the neglect, abuse and poverty suffered by children in the Helenvale, Bethelsdorp, Bloemendal and Booysens Park suburbs. Gang violence, substance abuse and the high unemployment rate in Port Elizabeth has made for a formidable task, but shining a beacon of hope, and seeing the lives of hundreds of children improve, makes the team’s efforts worthwhile. Project Hope is a non-profit organization, with a vision to positively impact the lives of children in the northern areas of Port Elizabeth.
