As of 22 June, Eastern Cape learners in all Grades will start receiving meals from the provincial education department’s school nutrition programme. As Ayanda Mthethwa reports, the almost two million learners will receive either a takeaway or cooked meal from their school. This comes after civil society organisations SECTION27 and the Equal Education Law Centre asked the high court to compel the government to restart its national school nutrition programme fully.
