Hidden Hunger in South Africa

Posted in: Food Systems, South Africa

South Africa is supposedly a food-secure nation, producing enough calories to feed every one of its 53 million citizens. But despite some progress, one in four people currently suffers hunger on a regular basis and more than half of the population live in such precarious circumstances that they are at risk of going hungry. These figures should be a national scandal, but hunger and malnutrition rarely make the headlines in South Africa and are not at the top of decision makers’ agendas.

Behind these shocking facts are the faces and stories of people who struggle to put food on their families table.
