Poor nutrition is a significant barrier to education in under resourced communities world-wide. School nutrition programs increase school enrollment as well as school attendance and retention. They are proven to enhance the development, health and learning of the children they support.

We have been feeding orphaned and at-risk school children since 2005.
School feeding programs increase levels of school enrollment, daily attendance and retention. They alleviate hunger and improve concentration – even among children who are not malnourished. For children under 6 years, school nutrition support offers the possibility of reversed stunting as well as improved outcomes for the rest of their school lives.Learn More
