Heatmaps

Identifying children in the greatest need

We have collated data from credible South African sources to develop a series of in-house ‘hunger heatmaps’. These maps represent a range of indicators for children’s vulnerability to hunger and food insecurity and assist us in tracking where our in-school feeding will have the most impact as we continuously increase our reach.

Where We Work

The Lunchbox Fund is a National Organization maintaining consistent yearly nutrition programs in the Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape, North West Province and Western Cape.

Our long-term goal is to reach the 4 million children who do not have access to government feeding programs.
