The UCT Food Security Programme, which was introduced last year, resumed on Monday, 28 January 2019. The programme is a collaborative initiative between several departments, as well as student and staff volunteers from across the university.

The initiative was launched during the November examination period last year to address the issue of student hunger, while promoting the dignity and agency of students, all underpinned by a spirit of volunteerism.

The UCT Food Security Programme is now providing free packed lunches to students in need from Monday to Friday from 11:00 to 14:00 in Room 1.04 on Level 1 of the Robert Leslie Social Science Building on Upper Campus.

The task team is appealing for more staff and student volunteers to assist with the preparation and distribution of the lunch packs.

To volunteer, or for further information, please contact Edwina Brooks (Edwina.Brooks@uct.ac.za / 021 650 3924) or Chance Chagunda (Chance.Chagunda@uct.ac.za / 021 650 4054).
