“Feeling hungry makes you feel inferior to the people around you. It affects your concentration. You start to look for ways to find food. I don’t think students should be worrying about food. Students should be students.”
Steven (name changed to protect identity) has been brave in sharing his experience of facing food insecurity as a Stellenbosch University student. His story has a happy ending because he finally received a bursary due to his strong academic success, which covered all the costs of his studies – including his food. Watch the full video here.
You can be the hero in an SU student’s story by donating R100, R1 000 or R10 000 to the #Move4Food campaign. If you want to give money and something more, sign up as a fundraiser and run, swim, walk, cycle, hike to help end student hunger at Stellenbosch University.
We’ve come a long way – but there is still a long way to go. Help SU students reach their finish line, especially during the crucial exam period.
