FOOD EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT [FEED]
The program is an effort to fight and combat hunger in poor communities. At $.40 per child per day, schoolchildren, who otherwise would spend the entire day at school on empty stomachs, receive a healthy hot lunch meal. Since the program's inception in 2015, St. Mark’s and Mpinda Primary schools have experienced improved class attendance and participation as well as reduced drop-out rate.
The two schools, serving grades K-7, have a total enrollment of approximately 550. Only 320 students from Grade K-4 were fed daily, initially, but now all 550 students receive daily lunch meals during school days. Our efforts to fight hunger in these communities is driven by our desire to ensure vulnerable students focus on their education.
