Act now on devastating 14% food price hike, Mr President!

The fact that food prices have risen by an average of 14% over the past year must finally prompt President Ramaphosa and his cabinet to do the right thing for the millions of children and adults in South Africa who are going hungry.

Sign this petition calling on the President to cut food costs NOW.

The President must do the right thing and take immediate action to alleviate hunger:

  • Expand the VAT-free status of a wider basket of goods (to include essential items such as bone-in chicken, beef, tinned beans, wheat flour, margarine, peanut butter, baby food, tea, coffee, and soup powder.)
  • Reduce fuel levies to lower the transport costs added to food prices.
