L’Avenir community a priority during Covid-19 lockdown

L’Avenir has partnered with Pebbles Project to ensure that its people are safe, healthy and nourished during this uncertain time. The L’Avenir farm worker community is receiving special meal parcels during the South African Covid-19 lockdown.

The food parcels are delivered by Pebbles Project to the families at L’Avenir, ensuring that 56 adults and children receive nutritious meals. Furthermore, the families still have access to proper health services through Pebbles Project’s mobile clinics.

Nutritious meals are delivered by Pebbles Project to the farm worker community at L’Avenir Wine Estate.

During the Covid-19 lockdown the L’Avenir Cellardoor and Country Lodge had to temporarily suspend business. These facilities play a key role in the sustainability of L’Avenir Wine Estate and its community. Contributions can be made to the Pebbles Project food parcels initiative by clicking here. The food parcels cost R150/ £6 / €7/ $8 / and will feed a family of 4 with 2 meals a day for 7 days.

“L’Avenir means ‘The Future’ in French and the sustainability of our people and community – with a special focus on the next generation – remains a key priority,” explains managing director, Naretha Ricome.
