There are too many severely malnourished children in Africa that need urgent food and lifesaving treatment. Help severely food-insecure children and their families this year.
School feeding programs are designed to alleviate hunger, enhance nutrition and encourage school attendance and retention to improve learning and educational outcomes.
In the poorest countries, school feeding programs are emerging as a common social safety net in response to a crisis. School feeding programs provide an important opportunity to assist poverty-stricken families and to feed hungry children. These programs have the potential to combat hunger and support nutrition through micronutrient fortified food, supplementation and anthelmintic treatment (deworming).
They provide impoverished families with an incentive to send their children to school –and keep them there, all the while improving their children’s education. These programs can be used to target the most vulnerable.
Our food and nutrition programs are tailored to align with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), those of No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well Being and Quality Education.
JAM provides emergency food aid and assistance to vulnerable communities affected by natural disasters such as droughts and floods, and in response to conflict. There is no one “right” way to aid hungry people. While food aid is essential in certain scenarios, it sprang forth as a solution to a basic and instinctive human response: people were hungry, so we fed them. Appropriate interventions depend on numerous factors that need to be considered in response. Food assistance, by contrast, involves a deeper understanding of people’s long-term nutritional needs and of the diverse approaches required to Hope In a Red Bowl meet them. It implies not just emergency interventions, but tailored, sustainable programmes designed to increase food security and uplift a whole community.
