Hot Lunch Feeding Program
Since February 2008, The Real Uganda has been serving up hot lunches to between 120-140 students (and a dozen or so teachers!) at Nalusse Success Primary School in Mukono Town, Uganda. Nalusse Success Primary School is located in a semi-urban area of Uganda, just one stop along our East Africa road trip in October 2017.
Many students that attend Nalusse Success Primary School come from homes that simply do not have enough money to provide 3 meals a day for their growing children. Therefore, some students come to school without breakfast and others have just a small dry bun with juice for lunch. However, through our partnership with The Real Uganda, we are dedicated to raising funds so they can provide each child with a good and nutritious meal at lunchtime every day.
Eating a hot lunch is important to these kids not only for their health, but to keep them energetic and able to learn each day. With your help, we can keep the Hot Lunch Feeding going and add to the success of all the students at Nalusse Success Primary School.
As of June 28th, 2021, Uganda is under a 6 week lockdown to stop the spread of coronavirus. The Hot Lunch Feedback program was set to resume on August 9th, but with the opening of the new academic year being pushed back to September 20th, the feedings may also be delayed in resuming.
