Our School Feeding Program (SFP), Meals for Minds, provides a hot daily lunch for our nearly 300 students during the school year.
That's 65,000 school lunches a year!
Only $0.50 / lunch - $100 to provide a daily lunch for 1 student for a year - helps to end malnutrition for our student, their siblings and their families.
When a child in Haiti is fed at school, a family's food resources are extended. Their younger siblings, parents, and any elderly relatives in the household are also able to eat, too.
And the benefits of a School Feeding Program (SFP) don't stop at simply ending malnutrition.
Child: nourished children consistently perform better academically.
Classroom: nourished children have less behavioural problems in the classroom.
Community: SFPs build human capital: the sum of a population's health, skills, knowledge, experience and habits. SFPs contribute to the local economy, supporting local businesses.
