The nutritional and development situation for children in South Africa has greatly worsened as a result of the pandemic exacerbating the economic recession.
Children as well as adults are suffering from malnutrition, particularly in the rural areas, which has a significant impact on their development, weakens the immune system, and negatively impacts their performance.
Illnesses and disease are therefore able to spread more quickly. For hundreds of thousands of children, the school meal is often the only meal they have in the day, although the diet often lacks variety. F.E.E.D. combats malnutrition and helps schoolchildren and their families by providing locally produced ‘vitality porridge’ which contains vitamins, minerals and protein. We provide training for teachers so that they can teach children about balanced nutrition and food production.
In this way, children can learn how to protect their immune systems. For a strong future!
