The City of Cape Town is setting aside R25 million for feeding schemes.

R10 million of that has already been approved, with the remainder expected to be voted for in March 2021 Council meeting.

Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Management, Grant Twigg, the City is now looking for partners.

The City’s about to advertise for non-profit entities, like public-benefit and non-profit organisations, to apply to actually run the feeding programmes.

Twigg said that the food programme will help the Metro expand its response to communities facing direct  circumstances.
