Why we invest

Malnutrition and hunger is common in school-age children across Africa. If you’re at school and hungry it’s hard to think, let alone learn. Midday feeding has the potential to boost attendance and learning. Food 4 Education produces high quality, low cost nutritious meals in large central kitchens and delivers them to children in primary schools in Kenya. They’ve devised a “hub-and-spoke” model that achieves impressive economies of scale to source, prepare, and distribute healthy school meals in bulk that parents can afford. It’s a cheap and easy way to feed kids and improve learning outcomes in Kenya that’s been proven in other settings, including India.
