Due to the national lockdown put in place by the President to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, many families are unable to earn an income to feed their families. Some of the worst affected are those that are informally and precariously employed, the elderly and child-headed households and Early Childhood Development (ECD) practitioners.

To respond to the increased levels of food insecurity, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Imbumba Foundation and the Siya Kolisi Foundation have partnered on an initiative called #Each1Feed1. The name of the initiative is inspired by the old Congress of South African Students (COSAS) mantra “Each one, teach one” and is adopted in honour of OR Tambo.

The initiative has distributed food parcels in Makhanda, East London and Zwide, Eastern Cape, Zandspruit, Durban, and Makhado in Limpopo. The initiative has also started on a project to provide boreholes to address the water shortage the communities are facing.

On Thursday 7 May the initiative will be distributing food in Sedibeng and Orange Farm with the Thebe Foundation.
