SA chefs conquer Kilimanjaro to fight hunger.

KYALAMI - The Cafe Mozart owner, together with the South African Chefs Club Brigade Blanche, reached Mount Kilimanjaro's summit on 16 August.

Midrand resident Fritz Flatscher of Cafe Mozart, as well as five members of the South African Chefs Club, took it upon themselves to climb the mountain with the aim of raising R589 500 (R100 per metre climbed). They hoped to donate the money to all the charities supported by the World Chefs Tour against Hunger in all nine provinces.

The team managed to raise an amount of R20 000, which will help feed 7 000 children in disadvantaged areas.

This initiative was not only to raise money but it was also part of Flatscher’s personal challenge. “I overcame prostate cancer, and, after undergoing treatment, I was looking for a life-changing experience or challenge that will bring me closer to nature,” he said.

This project was successful thanks to contributions from Worldnet Logistics and Unilever Food Solutions, as well as Sodexo Southern Africa. These contributions covered travel expenses and the team’s equipment.

Another challenge set by the team is to raise more awareness and continue to raise funds for the World Chefs Tour against Hunger by competing in the 94.7 Cycle Challenge.
