Description

Since the beginning of the economic crisis in Spain, the number of children at risk of poverty or social exclusion has been increasing. Today more than 2.6 million children - that represents one in every three- are in this situation.

Malnutrition is one of the direct consequences of this situation and it is estimated that more than 260,000 children can not afford to eat meat, fish or chicken twice a week.

Children who grow up in this situation have more difficulties to develop their full capabilities and enjoy the same opportunities as others. In addition, children who can not afford to go to the school luchroom and go home at noon, often miss school in the afternoon, thus increasing school absenteeism.

In this context, the school canteen becomes a space of protection to guarantee two basic rights of children: education and health.

Project objectives

To ensure a full and healthy meal a day to children at risk of poverty and social exclusion.

Improve health conditions and reduce the risk of obesity in children.

Reduce school absenteeism from evening to 100% (some of the youngest ones fall asleep after eating at home and no longer return to class in the afternoon.)

Improve school performance.
