At a school in Haiti which provides Kids Against Hunger lunches to its students, the school enrollment has more than doubled since the feeding program began. For the majority of the students, the meal they receive at school is their only source of nourishment.
"We have seen amazing results since first starting to use this food in our feeding programs. On average, we have seen a weight increase of at least 10% in the first two to four weeks of placing the children on the Kids Against Hunger food. This statistic is thrilling to us because many times it takes them from the severe malnourished stage of starvation to a point where their bodies can begin to heal from within. These children not only recovered physically from the effects of starvation but their minds began to develop normally and they were able to learn. The students at this school consistently score in the top percentiles on the Haitian standardized tests."
