Another great initiative that deserves some air time. As restaurants around the country wage war against the crippling effects of Covid-19, one of the most remarkable things to witness is the outpouring of their resources and skills to uplift those in greater need.
Aurum Restaurant in partnership with Legacy Pride – Legacy Hotel & Resort’s NPC, will be launching its #AURUMSoupDrive, serving homemade soup and bread to those communities who do not have access to a regular meal.
For every dish purchased off the new Aurum Home | Comfort menu, a cup of soup and bread will be donated to the following initiatives and their communities: Ikageng (Soweto), Alexandra Child Care and Support Centre (Alexandra); Diepsloot Residents Association (Diepsloot); Itlhokomeleng Association for the Care of the Aged & Disabled Persons (Alexandra); and New BeginningZ (Laudium).
The new menu features delicious and easy, heat-and-eat options including soups, casseroles, pasta dishes and desserts, available in portions perfect for two, four or more people.
“Being in the business of food means that we have a responsibility to share the joy of a wholesome winter meal with those in need, not just with our paying customers. For the next three months, we have set ourselves a target of serving 25,000 cups of soup and 2,500 loaves of bread. We hope that this will help the many communities who do not have access to a regular meal, never mind a wholesome, home-cooked one,” says Paulo Santo, MD of Aurum Restaurant.
Commenting on the partnership, Robert Hodson, Group Marketing Manager for Legacy Hotels & Resorts said Legacy Pride would contribute a cup for every cup prepared for the first 1,000 orders.
“Giving back is very much part of the Legacy story,” says Hodson, “and we hope that this partnership makes a difference to those in need.”
