SOCIAL RELIEF OF DISRESS


• South African Food Security & Development Agency is the appointed agency to implement and support the SRD program, with the department of Social Development driving the program.

• The program proposes for more coherent and robust responses to food and nutrition insecurity with the establishment of the SRD program, distributing food parcels to food insecure households in distress across KZN. Social workers compile an annexure report of the beneficiaries before SRDs are given out.

• The SRDs are separated into three categories which are Cat.1 for 1-2 people in a household, Cat.2 for 3-5 people in a household and Cat.3 for 6 or more people, which meet different family needs. The estimated number of households that is expected to be reached is 35 000.
