Govt to Convene Food Security Summit

Government is to convene a food summit to plan improved food security for cities, says Manuel

Minister in The Presidency, Trevor Manuel, has told residents of Khayelitsha, on the Cape Flats, that government is to convene a food summit to plan improved food security for cities.

Speaking at a presentation of the objectives, between now and 2030, of the National Planning Commission (NPC), which he heads, Manuel was responding to a recent survey that revealed that only one in 10 households in Khayelitsha and Philippi townships could be regarded as ‘food secure’.

Accompanied by ANC deputy president and NPC deputy chairperson, Cyril Ramaphosa, Manuel said that though the government require active citizens, people could not be expected to act on their own.
