School Nutrition

Due to the high levels of malnutrition, Rayo de Sol coordinates a school lunch program with the Ministry of Education. Meals are prepared by parents each day and served at noon for all students. This helps to improve attendance rates, as many children do not get enough to eat at home. Currently, there are donated food supplies available through partner organizations and the government. However, fruits, vegetables and dairy products are purchased locally, to provide a variety of nutrients for children.
