Langa learning journey

The Food Lab in partnership with the provincial Nourish to Flourish working group, the Centre of Excellence in Food Security, and the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership, facilitated a two-day Learning Lab in Langa, City of Cape Town on the 1st and 2nd of September 2022.  

The Food Learning Lab was designed to deepen participants’ understanding of Cape Town’s food system through the lens of Langa to be able to act differently in shaping this system particularly for the wellbeing of children. This was done through in-depth immersions into different aspects of the food system. These immersions enabled participants to engage the physical space and people’s live experience through observation and conversation.
