School Meals Feeding Bodies and Minds

“The land feeds our children’s bodies…and feeds their minds, so they can learn and grow.” Home-grown school meals programmes benefit children, their families, local farmers, and the entire community. The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian provider of school meals worldwide. Along with governments and partners, WFP supports education, reduces malnutrition, and promotes development, especially during times of crises and emergencies.
