‘You can’t teach a hungry child. Most of the children we work with on a day-to-day basis are accustomed to only one meal a day. And this meal may well be two slices of bread with a cup of tea at the start of each day. No school lunches packed. No lunch at home. And certainly no supper,’ says Kathy Maart, educator at Zeekoevlei Primary on the Cape Flats.
