MetadataShow full item record
Student hunger on university campuses has gained prominence ever since the #FeesMustFall movement spread across South Africa’s tertiary institutions in 2015. Although there are no definite statistics on the extent of the problem, university administrators are paying increasing attention to students’ lack of the basic needs of food and shelter. To sustain the conversation about access to food for students in South African tertiary institutions, the Dullah Omar Institute hosted a two-day national colloquium (13–4 August 2018) in conjunction with the University of the Western Cape and University of Pretoria, with the support of the Ford Foundation.
