Over 4000 hot meals served at Humanity Lunch Table 2018

The fifth Humanity Lunch Table hosted by The Next 48hOURS at Artscape on Women’s Day was once again a success. This year a total of 4270 hot meals were served to all those that attended the Artscape Women’s Humanity Arts Festival.

This year’s festival attracted attendees from across the Cape Metro as well as areas such as Atlantis, Paarl, Wellington and even a group of women from Ceres who made the journey by train. It was a day filled with entertainment, talks, exhibitions and the Humanity Walk, organized by Women Zone.

Alderman Patricia De Lille joined in the Humanity Walk leading the way and in her speech addressed many issues women face and really encouraged women to stand together and not be complacent.

Lunch is always the big attraction at the festival and editor Naushad Khan and his wife Roxanne Khan put together a lunch that offered a choice of a chicken biryani or a vegetable biryani, fresh fruit and cold drinks for all.

Says Naushad Khan, “It requires many hands to make this lunch possible and for that I would like to thank all our friends and supporters who stepped up and raised their hands to help in some way.

Special thanks to Grandwest CSI and Mr Mervyn Naidoo for his continued support for this annual lunch. Your contribution is a major part of making this lunch a success.
