dc.description<p>South Africa is supposedly a food-secure nation, producing enough calories to feed every one of its 53 million citizens. But despite some progress, one in four people currently suffers hunger on a regular basis and more than half of the population live in such precarious circumstances that they are at risk of going hungry. These figures should be a national scandal, but hunger and malnutrition rarely make the headlines in South Africa and are not at the top of decision makers&rsquo; agendas.&nbsp;</p> <p>This report is based on the testimonies of women and men, urban and rural, and attempts to show what it feels like to face hunger on a regular basis or to be constantly afraid of this threat. Eradicating hunger in South Africa will require an integrated legislative response based on the state&rsquo;s constitutional mandate to ensure that no one goes hungry.</p>en_US
