“The Val de Vie Foundation’s ethos has always been to leave a lasting, positive impact on the larger community. We realise that the need in our community during these unprecedent times is great, and the way our residents have opened their hearts and their wallets is inspiring.”
The Covid-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact all around the world: From health to economic, education and social development spaces.
Right on our doorstep, in our neighbouring communities, the reality is that thousands of people are going to bed hungry at night. This is due to the loss of income and restricted access to regular feeding schemes at soup kitchens, Early Childhood Development Centres and schools.
The Val de Vie Foundation is partnering with their Social Investment Managers, Valcare, and a host of other credible organisations, to help provide and pack thousands of vetted food parcels that will be distributed to the most vulnerable families in the communities within the Cape Winelands.
We are standing united and stepping up to be change-makers during these historic times.
- Contribute financially to enable the Val de Vie Foundation to buy as many food parcels as possible;
- One food parcel costs R350 and will supplement a family of four for one month;
- It will include non-perishable basic food items as well as soap and Covid-19 information leaflets;
- Our goal is to raise R875 000 per month, to support 2500 homes;
- Valcare will distribute the packs according to an operational plan and coordinated process that will be monitored and reported on.

20 April 2020
After the first week of operations on 18 April 2020, R1 168 994 funds were raised, with 528 food parcels and vouchers distributed to 2222 beneficiaries. In addition, Val de Vie Estate had 47 residents volunteer their time to pack, sort and sanitise the parcels, and multiple companies have sponsored goods in kind to support the response plan.
Ryk Neethling, Val de Vie Estate Marketing Director and Shareholder commented: “The Val de Vie Foundation’s ethos has always been to leave a lasting, positive impact on the larger community. We realise that the need in our community during these unprecedent times is great, and the way our residents have opened their hearts and their wallets is inspiring.”
The communities where the parcels will be distributed will stretch from Mbekweni, New Rest, Wellington, Lantana, Chicago, Klapmuts, Simondium and Gouda, depending on the availability of funds.
The goal is to raise R4 375 000 to enable the distribution of 2500 household food parcels per month, for five months up until August 2020. The project will however be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
