UN World Food Programme


Canada is WFP's second largest donor to its school feeding programmes which provide a nutritious meal or snack to an average of 20 million children in more than 60 countries every year, increasing enrolement and attendance and helping children learn more effectively. School meals aim to nurture the next generation of farmers, teachers, doctors and presidents - feeding minds as well as bodies. Since 1969, 38 countries have taken over school feeding programmes from WFP.
