Webinar | Addressing child hunger and food insecurity: the National School Nutrition Programme and beyond

3rd Sep 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Despite the success of recent litigation to ensure the right to basic nutrition for learners around South Africa through the resumption of the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP), serious obstacles remain to ensuring food security and combating hunger across the country. And while the NSNP case was a significant victory for the rights of learners to basic nutrition, child hunger is a complex phenomenon with many causes and lasting effects.

Beyond the National School Nutrition Programme, what other interventions can we advocate for to realise the right to basic nutrition and combat child hunger?

Journalist Kathryn Cleary will moderate a discussion between Sasha Stevenson ​​​​​​​(Head of Health Rights programme at SECTION27), Kath Hall (Children’s Institute, UCT), Prof Haroon Saloojee (Division of Community Paediatrics, Wits), Sibongile Teffo (Community Leader for Equal Education in Limpopo) and Tevin Mahlangu(Community Leader for Equal Education in Gauteng).
