A man, Themba Malume, has become a social media hero with his innovative way to help feed the less fortunate during these difficult times.

Malume took to the #ImStaying Facebook group on Wednesday to share photos of an agri-park he started.

In the post, Malume revealed the large garden, where he grows veggies, used to be a dumping site.

On one of the nearby walls, it is written: "No dumping, save the children."

Not only does Malume's idea feed those who are struggling during lockdown, it also has a positive impact on the environment.
