Food is not only tasty but it also provides you with energy throughout the day and is needed to stay healthy and grow. Hopefully you don’t have to worry about having some healthy food on your plate every day. Unfortunately, that is not the case for everyone. For more at-risk communities in countries impoverished by war and natural disasters, there is often a lack of food. Children, as the most vulnerable in society, face the biggest impact on their health and development.
As the largest humanitarian organization implementing school feeding, The World Food Programme (WFP) is committed to making school meals available in those areas where children need it most.. Healthy food, produced by local partners, not only prevents hunge but also encourages parents to send their children to school. That in turn ensures that children can receive an education and better chances later in life.
WFP school meals not only improve children’s health, but they also encourage them to attend school. For many children around the world, a daily school meal is often the difference between a child staying at home to work and being able to complete their education. Going far beyond the plate of food, school meals can help generate a lasting impact. That in turn ensures that children can receive an education and better chances later in lifefor children and their families.
In 2022, WFP reached an estimated 19.6 million children through school feeding in 56 countries. In 2021, 15.5 million in 57 countries were helped by WFP in this way.
