Meal a Day Nourishment Program

Food and Nutrition


Prior to the establishment of the school, children ate once every three days. Since 2010 children receive lunch 5 days a week. For most of them these 5 meals are all they will eat all week. The original lunch was a plate of posho (mashed potato-like texture made from cornmeal) and beans but in 2013, thanks to some generous donors, we have added vegetables and fish a few days a week to implement a broader range of nutrition. Also in 2013, we have added a small breakfast program so that the children won’t have to start their school days on an empty stomach. Today this is a very important part of our program. Now and in the days ahead.
