Almost 60% of children in South Africa live in poverty
That’s over 12m children below the poverty line and in need of nutritional support
26% of children suffer from stunting due to malnourishment
Our simple intervention nourishes a child’s body for growth and health, a child’s mind with the ability to concentrate and learn, and a child’s outlook with hope to rise above the cycle of poverty and hunger. It also provides a behavioural incentive for children to attend school, as well as an economic incentive for their impoverished and/or unemployed caretakers to keep them there.
What’s Included In A Lunchbox
We provide a rotating menu of nutritionally fortified foods that are delicious and familiar to the children. Each meal provides the child with a full RDA of macro and micro-nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Rice and Lentils
Samp and Beans
