School Feeding Program
When we visited Destiny Christian Primary School, we discussed on establishing a School Lunch Program that will provide a nice nutritious meal between 500 to 600 children. Many of these children come from our marginalized communities – families that are unable to afford public school fees or 2 meals a day. Over the years, we have seen that many of these children struggle in class because there arriving at there schools having had little or no breakfast and many of them get little to eat at their homes.
A nutritious, lunch-time meal can be provided for one student at a cost of 15 cents. The annual cost for this program amounts to between $15,000 and $20,000 USD depending on the price of food during a particular year. Therefore, a donation of $50 would provide 200 meals, and since there are about 200 school days in one school year, that $50 donation will provide a nutritious, lunch-time meal for one child throughout the entire academic year.
