Food for Education
Nairobi, Kenya

Providing subsidized, nutritious meals to public school students in Kenya to improve their nutrition, school attendance and performance.

The problem

One in four Kenyan children exhibit stunted growth from malnutrition, with many going to school hungry due to broken food production and distribution systems. The impact of this goes beyond hunger - it affects school attendance and performance.

Our Approach

Food for Education sources and delivers meals to Kenyan children in need. To date, they have provided over 500,000 meals to 6,000 children, which has improved school attendance and performance.
