Food Security & Sustainability Project Covid-19

Personal message

Edge of Africa is currently working with local stakeholders to provide access to food and sustainable gardening packages to the local Knysna community.

Our organisation has been active in the Knysna community for 15 years and during the Covid 19 outbreak, we have closed volunteering programs. We do however have a clear understanding of exactly how the shut down will affect the unemployment rate and with transport restrictions and layoffs we are expecting a large number of people to find access to food difficult during these unprecedented times.  

We have secured a supplier of basic food packages and sustainable food garden packages. We aim to identify families in distress and assist where possible.
A 4-week food hamper costs R490 and a garden package for a family of 4 costs R1100. We have options for bigger food packages and garden options for larger households.
