My church began supporting a school through this program several years ago. The money we send buys local food, which is prepared for the students by mothers in the community. For some children, the meal we provide is the only meal they get all day. By feeding the children at school, we help them to complete a 6th grade education. In this part of the world, that much education will qualify them for apprenticeship programs and a route out of poverty. Without that education, they are only qualified for manual labor in the fields. Lunches for Learning is not only feeding children, but it is helping to break the cycle of poverty.

Review from Guidestar

Started in my church, and serving only 82 studens in one Honduran village, Lunches for Learning (L4L) has grown to a regionally-supported charity that serves over a thousand students in a dozen villages. This organization maximizes the return on our investment in several ways: (1) administrative/overhead expenses below 10% of income insure that our donations work at the heart of the need, not subsidizing an advertising budget, (2) requiring village families to participate in daily meal preparation for the students helps to develop that community's involvement and internal solidarity, (3) keeping Honduran children in school through the sixth grade is proven to significantly increase their lifelong employability and personal success.

I have seen regular updates of the progress and impact that this program has, and it is powerful. Villages throughout the Valle District are pleading for the opportunity to be served by it. The only current limitaton is L4L's ability to assure sustainable funding levels (they don't want to get a village started, then drop them due to inadequate funds).

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Statistics: about how HIGH school absenteeism rates have dropped to almost zero. Pictures: of the children who wouldn't otherwise have gotten an education. Families: that have developed a new sense of pride in their communities due to their cooperative efforts to support and improve their own village.
