The study presents the impact of food security in Moretele Local Municipality, Bojanala District in North West Province, South Africa. The study was conducted among 100 households in Moretele from different villages. Respondents were selected randomly and information gathered through questionnaires. The results showed that 13 percent of the respondents were less than 30 years, 24 percent were between 51 - 60 years. Twenty -two percent are aged between 30 - 40 and 41 - 50 respectively. Though high percentage of respondents had access to land, resources such as money are not available to carry on the agricultural activities. For this reason, most are not engaged in the agricultural activities and do not have farming experience. The highest percentage of source of income is through child support grant and it is mainly used to make available food for daily consumption. It is clear that most of the households were food insecure. The level of unemployment is very high and level of education low. Thirty-eight percent of the respondents went to school up to primary level, and this is the highest percentage and the lowest is 2 percent for college attendants. Most of the respondents blame the area for their lack of unemployment; there are no nearby farms or factories for them to get employment.
