While Cape Town is one of the most picturesque cities in the country, it has some of the highest rates of unemployment and homelessness in the world. Thousands of people, young and old, go hungry every day.

Entrepreneur Wendell Petersen is doing his part to make a difference. He supports his family through his Hustle Dog venture, a food truck that caters music festivals, music video shoots and more. Once a month Petersen runs a soup kitchen from this food truck and hands out food – free of charge – to those who need it most.

Targeting communities that are battling issues like gang violence and poverty, the film sees Petersen serving food to children in Cape Town’s Belhar. It serves as a call to action for all citizens. No matter how small the contribution, one act of kindness can change a child’s life.
