Cabbage, chilli, peanuts, cauliflower, spinach, carrots...the garden of the lower secondary school in Yurung, Bhutan, probably has more fresh vegetables than your average neighbourhood market. Everything in the garden was grown by the children, who then eat their produce alongside the food provided by WFP and the government. In this way, WFP is supporting the community as it learns to produce more nutritious food for itself.
