Despite being an upper-middle-income country, hunger is widespread in South Africa and is related to the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment, and inequality.

According to the FAO, 45 per cent of the population experienced moderate or severe food insecurity in 2018-2020. South Africa presents significant prevalence rates of all three forms of malnutrition – undernutrition, overnutrition, and micronutrient deficiencies.

South Africa also reflects three forms of hunger: chronic, seasonal, and acute.

  1. Child stunting, an indicator of chronic undernutrition, has plateaued at around 25 per cent in South Africa since before the democratic transition in 1994, meaning that one in four children under 5 years old has displayed stunted growth for at least the last 30 years.
  2. Most farm workers on commercial wine and fruit farms in South Africa suffer seasonal hunger during the winter months every year.
  3. Several children in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa died of severe acute malnutrition in February 2022, a phenomenon that is also emerging in other provinces.

Acute food insecurity is related to shocks. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the National Income Dynamics Study – Coronavirus Rapid Mobile Survey (NIDS-CRAM) revealed that food insecurity (adult and child hunger, running out of money for food) rose significantly, as a result of lockdown-related restrictions on mobility, reductions in income driven by contraction of the economy and employment, and temporary suspension of the National School Nutrition Programme’s meals at school.

Seasonal hunger is widespread in rural areas of South Africa, particularly among farm workers because of the seasonality of employment opportunities in the agriculture sector, with wider knock-on implications in towns and communities in these regions, but it is under-reported in the media and unnoticed in government policy framings. Seasonal farm workers register higher levels of food insecurity in the winter months when they have no agricultural work, under several food security measurement indicators. This seasonal hunger is ‘invisibilised’ and ‘normalised’, because people with power do not experience seasonality, and are probably unaware that many South African citizens and residents face severe hunger during the winter months.

The democratic transition in South Africa in 1994 marked a political transformation that saw power shift, away from the privileged white minority towards the dispossessed black majority. It also marked the introduction of a rights-based approach to economic, social and political life, encapsulated in the Constitution and Bill of Rights (1996), which specifically required the government to take all necessary measures to eradicate hunger, where “the state must take reasonable legislative and other measures, within its available resources, to achieve the progressive realisation of each of these rights”.

As mandated duty-bearer, the state is ultimately responsible for ensuring that no person in a country goes hungry: “in theory it’s illegal for children to starve, or even to be malnourished”. If the state is not delivering on the constitutional right of every child to ‘basic nutrition’, why is this? Possible explanations include: (1) lack of resources (constrained public finances); (2) lack of capacity (inability to deliver); (3) lack of political will (no genuine commitment).

Lack of fiscal resources is not an adequate explanation. Tax revenues are plentiful and the government is constantly berated by the media and the Auditor-General for mismanagement and inappropriate spending of state funds. Lack of state capacity could be one reason. There is no lack of analysis and understanding of the issue. Rhetorical commitment, policy statements and numerous programmes are in place. However, a wide gulf exists between policy on paper and implementation in practice.

Specifically, South Africa has a National Food and Nutrition Security Plan covering the period 2018-2023, which is located within the Presidency, suggesting that the government gives high priority to food insecurity and malnutrition. However, by mid-2022 the Plan “has not yet been funded; nor has it yet convened the Council (its first “strategic objective”) that is meant to oversee its implementation”.

Clearly, lack of political will, or inadequate commitment, is an important contributory factor. Some of the determinants relate to political incentives. At the collective level, a concerted attack on hunger is unlikely to either win or lose the ruling party large numbers of votes. The ANC and to a lesser extent, other political parties, get punished by the electorate for service delivery failures, but politicians do not lose votes in elections because of the persistence of hunger. Hunger has not been politicised. At the individual level, ANC officials do not have indicators of hunger on their performance monitoring, and accountability for poor performance is limited.

Importantly, civil society, funded largely by private donations from citizens – an indicator of public concern about hunger – works on two fronts to tackle hunger. First, by delivering food directly, and in South Africa many NGOs, like Gift of the Givers, are doing this. Second, by pressurising the state to deliver on its mandate. NGOs and the media campaign vigorously on this. Since March 2022, for instance, the online newspaper Daily Maverick has run a series of articles about hunger in South Africa under the strapline #FOODJUSTICE.

All actors need to engage with a central challenge in South Africa, namely the absence of political accountability on the ground, at the local scale. Despite a need to engage hunger related issues in context, national positions and policies dominate food security and hunger policies. Local actors such as municipalities have very little direct food system mandate. This dissonance between policy-making and the site of struggle creates a delivery vacuum, one exacerbated by lack of political will. Until the policy architecture is completely rethought, children born today will continue to suffer the slow violence of hunger and malnutrition. Until hunger is politicised and its normalised, ‘invisibilised’, nature is actively challenged, the dire state of avoidable hunger in South Africa will persist.

Killexams : Food and Hunger

We should be eating much better with more zest and fellowship and health for ourselves, justice for the poor who endure hunger and food insecurity, humility before the creation, and gratitude to God. And that's advice from the Bread of Life.

From the Passover feast to the Lord's Supper and banquets in the early church, God's people have been molded by common meals. In Scripture we discover how table fellowship can shape our communities of faith.

Do Christian weight-loss programs uncritically embrace cultural ideals of slimness and distort the devotional significance of the body? While many Christians struggle to be fashionably slim, the poor are emaciated by hunger in developing countries or endure food insecurity in industrialized societies.

When it comes to conquering hunger, "we have what we need to make our way a world blessed with abundant fertility," Norman Wirzba observes. "What we still await is a culture devoted to the just production and sharing of this blessing."

The study guides and lesson plans integrate Bible study, prayer, and worship to help us explore Christian attitudes about food and responses to world hunger. The guides can be used in a series or individually. You may download and reproduce them for personal or group use.

Killexams : Pay information is finally becoming transparent

Never around the dinner table, not during the interview process and definitely not when in company — so when is it ok to talk about money? In the workplace it seems, as more and more companies (58% in fact) are becoming transparent about salaries in an effort to eradicate gender and cultural bias.

Because, despite great strides being taken to create a more diverse and equal workplace, the fact remains that in the U.S., women on average earn 16% less than men, while the difference in salary for those from Black, Asian and Hispanic communities can be as high as 43% when compared to white workers.

But let’s back up for a second. What exactly does pay transparency mean? Essentially, it refers to a company policy which involves the company sharing information about its pay grades and salary brackets before and during the hiring process and with existing employees.

It means sharing all financial information about its workers with its workers to ensure there are no discrepancies between workers doing the same jobs. Sounds great right? Well, yes. If done well, pay transparency results in a more positive, collaborative and engaged workforce because there’s no resentment between workers.

It also breaks down cultural and gender pay gaps, opens up opportunities for previously marginalized workers, and creates a workforce based on abilities and skills rather than genetic makeup.

So what’s the downside? Pay transparency requires more than just a town hall meeting and a salary memo being circulated, which is only now becoming obvious to companies. It requires a slight rethinking of HR practices and their links to salary — such as a super clear outline of how financial reward is results-driven as well as a clear explanation of the steps required to reach a higher salary bracket. Staff need to know what they must achieve if they want to step up to the next salary bracket.

For workers it poses a slightly different conundrum. If you’re bringing more value to the company than a colleague who’s on the same salary as you, how can you ensure your rewards package is representative of your output and avoid resentment? In short, this is about how you can make pay transparency work for you.

By being savvy, that’s how: Look past money and work to create a personalized, non-financial benefits package that adds to your lifestyle.

Know your worth

Why do you deserve extra benefits? When scheduling a meeting to broach this with your manager, make sure you’ve done your homework and have your pitch prepared. What value have you brought to the company over the past year, and what is your worth? Be specific here.

Look at the team average, and compare your impact. Try to avoid comparison with one co-worker, and instead compare your results with the team as a whole. This makes your pitch stronger and more professional. If you brought in 20% more than the team average, then that’s an argument for added reward. It’s harder to argue with data than it is emotion.

Know your ask

What do you want? Is it a matched 401K contribution, additional paid time off or flexibility within your work day to start a little later or finish a little earlier? Know exactly what rewards you want and suggest them to your boss – suggest them all, don’t stick on one. By bringing four to five options to your boss you’re doing the hard work for them and removing the possibility of securing a benefit that’s of no value to you.

Know when to walk

If you’re clear in your value to the company but your boss is unwilling or unable to offer a non-financial reward — then pay transparency is not working for you and you need to walk. You’ve done your homework on your worth and know what benefits you want so you have your starting point for negotiations with a new employer. There are dozens of companies currently hiring on the VentureBeat Job Board, three of which are highlighted below — all offering great benefits.

Killexams : ‘I know we can do this’: President Biden vows to end hunger in the U.S. by 2030

President Biden pledged to end hunger in the U.S. by 2030 and commit $8 billion by the public and private sector to fight hunger and related diseases Wednesday, as he launched the first White House Conference on Food, Nutrition, and Health since 1969.

“I know we can do this, end hunger in this country by 2030, and lower the toll that dietary-related diseases take on too many Americans,” Biden said in opening remarks at the Washington, D.C., conference. “There are a lot of food deserts out there,” he added.

The White House’s stated end goal for the conference: “End hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030, so that fewer Americans experience diet-related diseases like diabetes, obesity, and hypertension.” 

Some critics have pushed back at the term ‘food deserts,’ arguing that grocery chains, municipal decisions and lack of government funding contribute to what they call ‘food apartheid.’

The last White House conference on hunger, under President Nixon, created several key programs, including school lunches; the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and changes to how food manufacturers label their products. 

The toll of hunger and nutrition-related diseases disproportionately impacts communities of color, those living in rural areas, people with disabilities, elderly people, the LGBTQ+ community, military families and veterans, the White House said.

Biden spoke of the need to eliminate “food deserts,” where predominantly low- and moderate-income communities have to travel miles to purchase fresh and healthy produce. The White House pledged grant and loan funding to encourage new grocery stores in these areas.

One in five Black households is located in a “food desert,” the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. said last year. Some critics have pushed back at that term, arguing that grocery chains, municipal decisions and lack of government funding contribute to what they call “food apartheid.” 

Access to healthy and affordable food

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Urban Institute said one in five adults reported household food insecurity in 2022, meaning that families were unable to acquire adequate food for one or more family members. (The White House put that figure at one in 10 for 2020.)

“With food prices skyrocketing at the same time that many of the pandemic-relief provisions have ended, many families and individuals have struggled to afford enough food,” Jamie Bussel, a senior program officer at the RWJF, a nonprofit dedicated to public health, said Wednesday.

“Policies need to be put in place immediately to ensure that everyone in every community in America — especially our children — has equitable access to healthy, affordable food,” Bussel said. Food insecurity is higher for Black (29%) and Hispanic (32%) households than white (17%), he added. 

“Rapid food inflation in the latter half of 2022 will only further increase the risk of food insecurity for households across the country,” said Poonam Gupta, a research analyst at the Urban Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank.

“As rollbacks of key programs leave households with fewer resources to meet the pressures of rising costs, intentional investment in social safety net policies is necessary to reduce further hardship in the coming months,” Gupta said.

Heart disease and diabetes

At the conference in D.C., Biden said the government aims to invest in school nutrition programs with partnership across the nonprofit and private sectors, and educational programs to promote healthy eating and prevent illnesses including heart disease and diabetes.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One person dies every 34 seconds in the U.S. from cardiovascular disease, the CDC said.

“About 697,000 people in the United States died from heart disease in 2020 — that’s 1 in every 5 deaths,” the CDC said. “Heart disease costs the United States about $229 billion each year from 2017 to 2018.”

Frequent consumption of soda, fruit drinks and energy drinks is linked with heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and gout, according to the CDC. Type 2 diabetes is more common in adults, and can be caused by a variety of factors, including diet, family history and genetics.

Biden told the conference that the country had to “think big” to cure dietary-related diseases and hunger. “In America, no child should go to bed hungry. No parent should die of a disease that can be prevented,” the president said.

Killexams : Biden wants to put calorie information on the front of food packaging

The Biden administration has suggested moving nutrition labels to the front of food products as part of a series of policies aimed at tackling the nation’s hunger and diet-related diseases by the year 2030.

On Wednesday, the White House will be hosting a Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health, the first of its kind in 50 years. Ahead of the meeting, the administration outlined some of the policies it intends to introduce at the conference in a 44-page summary, which included migrating the iconic black and white nutrition label to the front of food packages.

The changes to the way that food in America is packaged and sold is just one of the policies that the Biden administration hopes to implement in the coming years in an effort to address the “urgent” hunger and diet-related diseases that impact millions of Americans that have only intensified as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Hunger, diet-related disease, and the disparities surrounding them impact millions of Americans, and the COVID-19 pandemic put a spotlight on the urgency of addressing these issues,” said Ambassador Susan E Rice, domestic policy adviser, in a statement when the conference was announced back in the springtime. “No one should have to wonder where their next meal will come from. We must take bold steps now—with government, the private sector, non-profits, and communities working together—to build a healthier future for every American.”

The Biden administration has said it wants to tap the Food and Drug Administration to carry out research about this specific policy initiative to see whether the placement of labels could better “communicate nutrition information” to prospective customers.

NPR reported that another proposed change to the nutrition labelling system, which has been appearing on grocery store shelf products since 1994, would be the addition of “star ratings or traffic light schemes to promote equitable access to nutrition information and healthier choices”, which they hope would have the knock-on effect of nudging the food industry to sell healthier food.

As part of the White House’s broader strategy to make healthful food more readily available, officials have also suggested expanding free school meals to 9m more children over the next 10 years and making it easier for children to continue to use those school-based programs during the summer and holidays.

The conference, which was announced in May, is the second time an event of this kind has been held since the inaugural one in 1969. It arrives at a pivotal time for the US in addressing the fight against hunger and diet-related diseases, both of which were exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Department of Agriculture.

For instance, a study of 432,302 children between the ages of 2 to 19 years old found the rate of body mass index (BMI) increase nearly doubled during the pandemic when compared to a pre-pandemic period, the CDC found.

And though before the onset of the pandemic, the overall food insecurity rate had dipped to its lowest point since it began being measured in the 1990s, that progress was largely upended after March 2020.

Feeding America, a US nonprofit organisation with a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, reported that an estimated 45m people (1 in 7), which includes 15m children (1 in 5), may have experienced food insecurity in 2020 and for the next year they predicted that would only dip down to 42m total.

And though the lockdown restrictions that shuttered most of the economy and sent unemployment skyrocketing during the first part of pandemic may now be waning, inflation remains at a record level with grocery bills climbing for nearly every month this year, The Washington Post reported.

Compared to last summer, groceries prices are 12.2 per cent higher, which is the largest year-over-year spike in more than four decades. And the food products that are reflecting that increase are the ones that the Biden administration is hoping to get into families’ cupboards (fruits and vegetables, for instance cost 8 per cent more while commonly purchased products like bread and cereal are up 14 per cent, according to federal data).

Also slated to be introduced at Wednesday’s conference is: the improvement of public transportation to supermarkets and grocery stores for the nearly 40m Americans who live in food deserts; eliminating and/or reducing food waste; increasing the amount of green space in “nature-deprived communities”; piloting programs that would cover medically tailored meals for people who are on Medicare; updating the guidelines for food products that include the word “healthy” on the label; and educating health-care providers on nutrition.

Since a good portion of the proposals that will be outlined in the conference would require legislation to be approved by Congress, it’s unclear how long these proposals would be able to be implemented in the near future, if at all.

Though the 1969 conference saw many of the suggested proposals taken up within two years, advocates warn that it could take several to even see a few of these policies play out in real world conditions, NPR reported.

Despite the seeming uphill battle, President Joe Biden maintained that he was “committed” to enacting real change when he unveiled the conference back in the spring.

“I’m committed to taking bold steps that are going to help end hunger and enable everyone to have access to affordable, healthy food and safe places to be physically active,” said the president in a prepared address. “Together let’s build a healthier future for all Americans.”
