FAQ  5 - IS FOOD AVAILABLE IN ZIMBABWE? "We heard that food had to be mailed from the US because it is not available there."

Answer:  Food is very scarce, some stores have been absolutely empty in the past, but lately that has changed. Food is usually available.  During September ’08, we purchased 8 metric tons of mealie-meal locally from a miller that was willing to sell us 60 more tons two days before we left the country! Since that time almost all of our purchaces have been local. We now have trucks that can travel to Botswana and/or Zambia to purchase food, if necessary, which is a second option.
