FEED 100 Bag

Whole Foods has joined with FEED projects to ends child hunger. The FEED 100 bag will provide 100 nutritious meals to hungry school age children in Rwanda through the United Nation World Food Program's School Feeding Program. A majority of children eat their one and only meal at school. In fact this school meal is often the only reason why children come to school. Not only are they being feed and learning, but the FEED 100 bag is ending the poverty cycle. Three hundred schools have benefited from the World Food Program.

school attendance has grown from 63% to 93%
gender gap is closing for children who attend school
girls who have a few years of school have fewer children later in life
children who go to school are likely to send their future children to school too
