Student tells Briefly News she is grateful she can raid groceries

Grace Mutshavhela told Briefly News that one cannot be a normal student and leave home without hijacking the cupboards.

"I've never bought sugar at res because when I go home, I make sure. But honestly, I'm grateful to come from a home where I can raid food as some students can't afford to do that where they come from. I spend an average of R700 per month on food. I do weekly shopping to save coins. Students typically spend about R500 per month. They don't romanticize their meal plans as long as their stomachs are full," she said.
