The Woodstock Brewery has repurposed its beer vats for soup
It’s Mandela month and Woodstock Brewery needs your help to make food for 10,000 people a day
The Woodstock Brewery has repurposed their beer vats for a greater cause. For the entire month of July, The brewery invites you to cook up a vat of soup and help feed over 10,000 people a day.
MORE THAN JUST 67 MINUTES
It's not Mandela Day but Mandela Month for this iconic Cape Town brewery. Every day until 31 July you are invited to join in and help out in any way possible. All the help is warmly welcomed, including peeling and cutting the vegetables or helping with deliveries.
THE BEER VATS ARE BEING PUT TO GOOD USE
It's all possible thanks to the same vats that make their classic craft beer we love so much. Using these large, efficient and safe brewing pots, they can cook about 7,000 litres of soup a day. Their record so far is 14,000 litres. With this amount of soup, they're able to feed about 16,000 people per day, but only with your help.
