Food security has been a topical buzzword in many governments of developing countries over the past few years and in March 2011, the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries published a document examining the problem of food insecurity in South Africa and discussing possible solutions to this problem.
In light of the fact that our constitution indicates that every South African citizen has a right to sufficient food and water; and social security, the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries was mandated to develop agricultural policies and support programmes to ensure that South African citizens are given agricultural opportunities that will enable them to meet their basic food needs.
A further report found that agriculture contributes to poverty alleviation not only by empowering people to grow their own food but also by reducing food prices, creating employment, improving farm income and increasing wages.
Most importantly, empowering people to grow their own food for subsistence or income generation will provide nourishment and potential income to many people currently experiencing food insecurity. It is in developing our training facilities that we hope to become more involved in empowering the people of South Africa to grow ethically and eat healthily.
