WC Food Aid Strategy Criticised

The ANC and NGOs criticise the Western Cape’s new strategy aimed at ‘getting recipients of food aid to work in their communities’

If you are able-bodied, unemployed and between 18 and 40, you might be required to do a bit of work to be able to benefit from a food aid handout, according to the Department of Social Development in the Western Cape.

Social Development MEC, Albert Fritz, states that the change in policy came about because previous attempts at addressing hunger across the province had been ineffective, and in many instances the aid never reached its intended recipients.

Meanwhile, this new provincial strategy, aimed at getting recipients of food aid to work in their communities, has been criticised by non-governmental organisations and the African National Congress.
