As many endure the real financial burden of the lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, members of the public and civil society groups alike have taken up the task to help feed the hungry.
LOCKDOWN | Here's how you can help those in need
This week in Mooreesburg in the Western Cape, NGO Gift of the Givers took its trucks, often seen helping out water-scarce communities, to deliver food parcels to grateful residents.
And also this month, chef Peter Ayub, who runs the Sense of Taste school in Cape Town, brought his team together to help make and distribute meals in Kensington and Factreton.
They are just two groups of many across the province and country who have pulled through to do their bit to battle starvation during this time.
