How can a child go to school and study without nutritious healthy food?

Hunger can drive our children away from schools...

  • 11% of children deaths in Egypt are due to malnutrition.
  • 33% of children in Egypt (age 6-18 Yrs.) are stunted due to malnutrition. Stunting affects child’s ability to comprehend and concentrate during class. Stunted children are more likely to fail in education by 2% compared to nourished children.
  • Repetition rate in primary governmental schools reached 6%.

EFB launched the school feeding program in 2010, establishing school feeding kitchens in the poorest primary governmental schools in order to provide a daily hot nutritious meal to students during their school year. School Feeding Program aims to provide nutritious meals to enhance the students' health and encourage them to attend school and increase their ability to concentrate and comprehend.

School Feeding Kitchen is an opportunity for the students’ mothers to develop their skills and obtain a job. EFB provides cooking and nutrition sessions for the students’ mothers (theoretical & practical) and then choose the best 5 cooks and hire them with monthly salary as kitchen chefs in one school, and another 2 as a kitchen general supervisor and a purchasing supervisor over 20 schools. (For more information about the school feeding kitchen:  http://www.egyptianfoodbank.com/en/school-feeding-kitchen)

In 2014, we served more than 21,000 hot nutritious meals daily throughout 22 school kitchens in 10 governorates, and hired more than 100 mothers in the kitchen team. We are currently preparing 8 kitchens in 4 governorates to serve more than 9,000 meals daily.
