Vulnerable people in our community
that need your help

Breaking Bread Community Development

Welcome to the Breaking Bread Community website.

We're an NPO based in Salt River and Observatory, Cape Town. Over the last two years, we've worked with vulnerable people in our community that need our help.

Our pragrammes and upcoming projects aim to offer a platform to give everyone we work with a better opportunity to feel empowered to make progress.

Breaking Bread's purpose is to provide a decent meal in a safe environment. From there, our goal is to create a community space where the people we work with can learn new skills, discess any issues with a social worker, and to discover the right path for them to make progress on their own terms.

Please feel free to contact us directly.
