In our centre the children receive breakfast and a hot lunch Monday through Friday. For many of them, this is the only meal they may receive each day. We have a cook who prepares all the meals with local seasonal products, purchased daily in the market.
The meals we serve are the most immediate and tangible benefit the children receive from us. Meat, fruit, vegetables and beans are served consistently, and are integrated with multivitamin and iron supplements in the worst cases of malnutrition and anemia.
