World Food Day

Self-sustainability a real solution

To celebrate World Food Day, Joint Aid Management South Africa (JAM SA) joined forces with the KFC Add Hope campaign to deliver food parcels to the physically impaired persons living in the Swanville settlement in Kagiso, west of Johannesburg, on 15 October.

One of the objectives of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ World Food Day, marked every year on 16 October, is to ‘heighten public awareness of the problem of hunger in the world’. To help relieve hunger in the Swaneville community, 160 beneficiaries received take-home food hampers, provided by KFC Add Hope.

“Picked today from the garden and straight into the pot!” That’s the motto that Welheminah Mutane now lives as a member of the Tlhaku Farming Project in Swaneville on the West Rand of Johannesburg. She’s got evidence too…jars and jars of pickled beans and stewed fruits on sale at JAM SA’s World Food Day market.
