Get Going Campaign


Due to the challenges of unemployment and food insecurity facing the majority of South Africans today, nutritional food intake is being replaced with cheaper, less healthy meals. This is having a damaging effect on health and economic stability.

The Department of Health Western Cape, in collaboration with NICUS (Nutritional Information Centre of Stellenbosch University) has researched and produced the content for the GET GOING 64-page full-colour A5 booklet in isiXhosa, Afrikaans and English which informs the recipient, through daily menus, on how to eat nutritionally for less. The booklets are distributed free of charge to NGOs and farms in the Western Cape.

  • Please remember, we can’t teach a hungry child and therefore poverty within our communities perpetuate.
  • Please assist us in promoting health in our communities by distributing the booklets to as many families who could benefit.
