Jason Bakery / Cape Town, South Africa

[documentary] WE’RE IN THE SAME STORM BUT IN DIFFERENT BOATS
The past two months have been difficult for many! The saying “we’re all in this together” is only partially working for us. It’s more like: We’re all in the same storm but in different boats. There are people who lost their jobs, had to close their companies, had to take a massive pay cuts… there are others who got to keep their jobs, can still keep their business doors open… show kindness for the different boats!
And if there are businesses you love – help them out by supporting them more than ever! Because otherwise they’re the next ones announcing that they have to close. Put your money where your heart is!
🥐 A business we love is Jason Bakery [@jasonbakerycpt]- best bread and pastries in town (and further!). We got to hang with them from 4am one morning, documenting the awesome team making magic. Go support them, there are not many bakeries that make such high quality products and make Cape Town awesome!

Thanks to Ascis and Lenize Potgieter for being rockstars!
