Whilst the Right to Food is enshrined in the Constitution, one-third of the South African population experiences unwanted hunger at some time in the year. People’s autonomy over food sources ensures that enough food is available and people can purchase food. This also facilitates consideration for the quality and nutritional value of the food. Dialogue is required to ask why people are food insecure, the systems that limit people’s access to food, and the way food is produced and distributed. Various stakeholders from the Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga and Kwa Zulu Natal will be meeting Grahamstown for an initial dialogue around the Right to Food.
