About the school meals programme
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest organisation fighting hunger. Every year WFP provides food aid to some 90 million people, more than half of them children, in over 70 countries. One of WFP’s initiatives is the school meals programme, which provides free meals to children in schools. The concept is simple: with a free meal hungry children are drawn to attend school, where they can escape the spiral of hunger and poverty. This is especially important for girls, who are often the first to be kept at home in poor families. For many parents, this is a reason for sending their children to school rather than out to work. It costs WFP just 20 euro cents to provide one child with a nourishing meal at school each day.
