Investing in rural communities ’critical to food security’

Cape Town – Food redistribution organisation FoodForward SA has launched its ninth mobile rural depot (MRD) programme to address the growing crisis of food insecurity in vulnerable rural communities.

This latest addition is the third MRD in KwaZulu-Natal and will initially serve 1,651 vulnerable people through a network of seven beneficiary organisations located in Mtubatuba, Kwangwanase, Thokoza and Nongoma in the north of the province.

According to Statistics South Africa, KwaZulu-Natal has the highest number of rural areas in South Africa.

While South Africa is food-secure at national level, the country is still food-insecure at household level.

According to Stats SA, almost 20% of South African households had inadequate or severe inadequate access to food in 2017.
