Today is World Food Day. Chances are if you are reading this then you’re sat with plenty of food in the fridge and cupboards. Of course, not every body in the world is so lucky. Meet Molly, a 13-year-old Kenyan girl living in one of the largest slums of Africa.
A while back, I wrote about the glorious idea of school meals, and Molly is one example of how free school meals not only keep her fed, but keep her in school. On top of this, the food she receives acts as fuel for her brain, helping her concentrate on her education. The meals provide her, her best friend Yvonne and her classmates with a healthy start in life that so many of us take for granted in the developed world.
For World Food Day, I’m inviting you to spare just a fragment of your time – by clicking here and answering three questions about Molly. For doing so, a child will receive a free school meal.
