Story

Just outside of Stellenbosch, the heart of the South African wine industry, 4 out of 5 children go hungry everyday🍴 👧🏾👦🏾

In 2015, Naked Wines winemaker Carmen Stevens and some local mums decided to do something about it.

They started up a soup kitchen serving soup to 300 hungry kids. And when the money and food ran out, the Naked Wines customers stepped in, raising enough funds to feed them for a whole year.

Over the years that soup kitchen has grown into a network of school and community kitchens which has fed 38 million nutritious meals to kids who would otherwise have gone hungry.

Last year our community raised a staggering £468,883 to put meals on the table for over 25,000 hungry children. But the money will run out soon and we need to top up their funds for another year.

If you can, please consider donating and we’ll make sure Carmen’s kids enjoy full bellies for another year.

It only costs...

🥣 Just £25 to feed a child two meals a day for an entire school year.

🥣 £2.50 to feed a child two meals a day for a month

🥣 Just 63p to feed a child 2 meals a day for a whole week.

100% of the money you donate goes toward the food - all of the administrative time, resource and other charity tasks are donated by Naked Wines UK

And remember if you're a UK tax payer, Gift Aid can add 25p to every £1 you donate. So please remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you donate. It won’t cost you a penny more, as the Government adds the extra 25%.

PS. If you are a Naked Wines Customer, you can donate on our website and use your balance towards your donation: https://nakedwines.com/carmenskids
