SOWETO EAT-IN : 7 October 2017

Parking at UJ Soweto Campus Chris Hani Road & Horse-drawn carriage to the event
The Soweto Eat-In 2017 is a public event that highlights the need for food system change in order to address food insecurity in Johannesburg. This is an event of great public significance, highlighting the need to address the scourge of food insecurity and hunger in Johannesburg and in the South African food system. Food insecurity in Johannesburg is a pervasive problem that needs imaginative solutions as well as a systemic shift at multiple levels in the food system.
The Soweto Eat-In 2017 presented by the University of Johannesburg and Slow Food focuses on School Feeding Schemes in South Africa as a theme to mobilize the public around food system change. We source all fresh produce from local farmers in and around the Johannesburg area and meat is exclusively sourced from sustainably reared and free-range animals. We prefer to purchase produce from emergent and small-scale farmers.
The Soweto Eat-In 2017 will be an interactive event styled around School Feeding Schemes, and will include the following:
- The Skaftini Challenge – organised by Slow Food and the South African Chef’s Association with the aim to encourage the development of a healthy, sustainable and delicious template to follow for healthy school meals as part of School Feeding Schemes.
- Farmers Market – organised by Soweto Market Place (an emerging enterprise) that sells locally produced foods and crafts.
- The second iZindaba Zokudla Global Food Revolution Public Conference – Presented by Anthropology and Development Studies at the UJ where the general public can participate in deliberations and presentations on food system change.
- The 10 000 gardens Funda UJabule Food Garden – donated by Slow Food – where students from the University of Johannesburg are trained in agro-ecological food production techniques.
The Soweto Eat-In 2017 will shift our understanding of the food system and feeding schemes in particular, by highlighting city policies and university research, and by offering a solution to hunger by involving the general public, emergent entrepreneurs and students of the University of Johannesburg.
This is an unprecedented opportunity to innovate in our ways to combat hunger. We will demonstrate to the world that it is possible to feed our children with sustainably and ethically sourced meat and locally produced vegetables, served as delicious cuisine – reflecting the best of our African heritage.
Please contact us to clarify the details of the event.
