Margot Janse

Dutch chef Margot Janse runs a top restaurant in South Africa. She is also the woman behind Isabelo (‘Feeding Hungry Minds’), an initiative that started with a simple gesture – nutritious muffins cooked for 70 school children in Franschhoek, South Africa (Margot’s local area) – where many children suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Backed by successful fundraising efforts in the Netherlands, Isabelo has now become a program that produces 1,300 meals a day for local schools, in partnership with other local initiatives.
