As part of its community sustainability plan, Eddys Kitchen Initiative has today launched a school feeding program intending to empower children from low-income homes to get a proper education.
The school feeding program will benefit students in Mutwala Primary School which has children from one of the most disadvantaged rural areas in Muhoroni Sub-county. Nearly 600 students will benefit from the program as it hopes to alleviate malnutrition in students and encourage the most vulnerable students to attend and achieve at school.
Muhoroni sub-county has a substantial number of school dropouts and an alarming level of food insecurity and malnutrition observed among students. Every student in this school will receive 2 nutritious meals which are made up of breakfast and lunch.
This ceremony demonstrated the local government’s commitment to providing support to education sector stakeholders for academic achievement and alleviating hunger.
