It's more about making local food 'systems' more productive and reliable so that nutritious food is always available, even to the poorest of the poor. But what is a food system precisely? And how can you make it stronger? Food For Assets For Individuals Nutrition Preventing Hunger What is Malnutrition?

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.

This activity supports the nationwide trends of increased enrolment and attendance rates and reduced dropout rates. The provision for meals also improves the short term nutritional status of school going children and thus supports their concentration and cognitive capacities.   Development Operation (DEV) School Meals Bhutan Local Asia School Meals Mon, 28 Feb 2011 23:00:00 +0000 WFP 30759 at http://www.wfp.org
