Taking nutrition to scale

Dec 29, 2011

 

Warm meals. Warm smiles. Healthy bodies.

Earlier this year, we announced the launch of the Spring Sprout Project in China that will build 1,000 kitchens in rural schools over the next three years, and provide resources for feeding programs.

The Amway Charity Foundation now celebrates its milestone 300th kitchen, established in the Danfeng Primary School in Chongqing last month.

To date, 150,000 children in rural China are now benefiting from nutritious meals prepared in a new kitchen with a trained kitchen supervisor who has the necessary resources to keep children well fed. For students, the memory of having a cold, monotonous lunch in the wind begins to fade.

The celebration will not last long, as there are many more students in need and more kitchens to be built.

The Amway Charity Foundation is now working with the China Development Research Foundation to study this nutrition intervention and provide data for public policy decisions that can help alleviate child malnutrition.
