KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Residents Meal Location After Flood

After affected schools in KwaZulu-Natal were closed this week, many learners will now not have access to food that is provided at schools through the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP).

Non-Profit Organisation, Meals On Wheels said they are committed to providing food to vulnerable citizens during this trying time.  

They said, “As a non-profit organisation that specialises (but not limited to), in providing meals to the destitute, we believe that hunger is the extreme materialisation of poverty and human deprivation, therefore mitigation of this, especially during this tragic disaster is vital. Food must be the least of things that the residents worry about especially at a time like this”.

DBE spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said that open schools must still continue to distribute these crucial meals to students.

He said, “The heavy rains in KZN are causing damage. Please be careful. Elsewhere in the country please ensure we continue as usual”.

The NSNP aims to increase the learning capabilities of learners by providing healthy meals at schools. These meals are distributed at Primary and Secondary Schools.
