Bangladesh is suffering from the global food crisis.
Three-quarters of their children’s meals don’t meet dietary variety standards. Even 26% of under-fives from wealthy households are stunted... Hunger has dominated the country.
But food is their answer.
With regular and nutritious school meals, children in Bangladesh can get the vital nutrition they need to grow up healthily. Attending school on a full stomach allows them to achieve the education they need to break from this pattern and unlock a brighter future.
