Poor rural families must often choose between sending their children to school or to work the fields. A daily school meal provides a strong incentive to send children to school and keep them there, and allows the children to focus on their studies, rather than their stomachs. In Somalia, WFP works with over 400 schools and provides daily meals to over 100,000 school children in the parts of the country we have access to.
