Organisations and Charities we support with YOUR help

For many dishes we sell we donate a small amount to some charities, here is the list.

Each week we publish a list of donations made on social media.

Bolognese pasta - Sunflower (Pavarotti) pizza

  • R10 goes to The Sunflower Fund charity which strives to increase the number of stem cell donors in South Africa.  In 2013 Massimo had a bone marrow transplant to cure a rare form of blood cancer. Luckily his sister Loretta was a perfect match as a donor, but not everyone is so fortunate.

All spuntini (tapas)

  • for each spuntino sold R2 goes to Bright Start - ‘we are committed to providing a brighter future for children, youth, and adults from low-income families in historically impoverished communities through access to better educational opportunities. Our mentorship programme gives on-going support outside the classroom by addressing social, cultural and physical needs as well as parental empowerment, therefore ensuring the child and their family reach their maximum potential.’

Aperol spritz - Bambino pizza

Luna pizza

  • for each Luna pizza R10 goes to DARG (Domestic Animal Rescue Organisation), a pro-life, non-profit organisation that rescues, cares for, sterilizes and rehomes previously abused, neglected and abandoned cats and dogs. DARG provides a crucial role for the communities of Imizamo Yethu, Hangberg and the greater Hout Bay area.

Margherita pizza

  • for each Margherita pizza (and we sell lots!) R4 goes to Border Collie Rescue -  established in 1998 and now rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes many Border Collies in need. Why a breed specific shelter?

The result of keeping a border collie in a kennel or very small confined space can already be seen after a couple of days. They run round and round the kennel, bouncing against the walls and gate, barking continuously. These Collies will be permanently damaged if their confinement is continued. They also stand little to no chance of being adopted showing this "crazy" behaviour. 

Carbonara pasta

  • for each Carbonara pasta R5 goes to Hout Bay Pets -  is a small non-profit that provides animal care services to the residents of the historically disadvantaged communities of Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg in Hout Bay, Cape Town. These services include a weekly clinic, advice, referrals, vaccinations and education. HB Pets also helps owners fence their yards in and otherwise improve the living conditions of their pets. HB Pets also helps animals from those communities find new homes if they need to. HB Pets' emphasis is on education and empowering pet owners, rather than pet confiscation. HBPets work closely with:

Bottled water

  • for every bottle of filtered water sold R1 goes to  Shaygam, the young man who rescues abandoned and neglected animals in the Hangberg (harbour) area of Hout Bay.

Hot Latina pizza - JJ's Jewels sausages - Happy Valley calzone - Limoncello shot

House wine (red or white)

Doggy menu

  • For every item sold off our doggy menu, R1 is given to the Underdog Project  - a charity rehabilitating vulnerable youngsters by teaching them to work with rescued dogs, building better lives for the youngsters, while developing more adoptable dogs at DARG (see above)

 

Chocolate Brownie Dessert

For each chocolate brownie sold R5 will go to the Denis Goldberg foundation to help realize the House of Hope in Hout Bay
