Food security has been the biggest need for the many residents who have lost their income due to the lockdown. Stellenbosch Unite has assisted vulnerable community members during the COVID-19 pandemic with:

Stellenbosch Unite funding depleted

The week of 17-21 August, Stellenbosch Unite informed all its coordinators and beneficiaries that: “Our food funding has been depleted and that this week will be the last week of food parcel and soup distribution. Please note that the voucher system will continue until the end of September for existing beneficiaries, but no new applications can be accepted.
