Health Yourself Paying it forward.
Health Yourself is committed to making a change in the world for the better of it's people. Through our love for food and wellness we aim to make a positive change in the lives of the less fortunate.
Poverty, unemployment, homelessness and starvation is a stark reality for an alarming number of South Africans and people around the world. Health Yourself is dedicated to making a positive impact on as many lives as we can.
We run an active charity soup and sandwich drive which feeds hundreds if not thousands of South Africans monthly.
Covid-19 has had a devastating effect on the livelihood of so many people and Health Yourself with the help of Kath from Life and Fork, Nosh Food Rescue and numerous volunteers are collectively running an ongoing Charity Soup Drive to feed as many hungry South Africans as possible.
You too can get involved by pledging a pot of soup to the cause. a pot of soup feeds approximately 100 people with a sandwich on the side.

They say dynamite comes in small packages, and nothing could be more true in the case of Christine Phillips of Health Yourself.
Since the early days of Chefs with Compassion when Nosh Food Rescue NPC first started supplying rescued produce to restaurants, Christine began preparing butternut soup made with love in her kitchen at home. Our favourite image is a video of Christine standing on a chair with a stick blender almost as tall as she is, whirring up her soup. Cooking for OJC in Florida, she started with 46 cups of soup, and quickly revved up to 200 a day. On one spectacularly busy day (coincidentally Worker's Day) she cooked 800 cups for Jobs of Faith in Yeoville, AND baked up a storm for Service in Motion in Riverlea and Jobs of Faith. And that’s not all! She’s also been making food parcels and got learners to do their community service hours by getting involved. What an inspiration to us all!
