School Lunch Program Expansion

The Pueblo a Pueblo School Lunch Project has expanded this year from one to three schools in the Santiago Atitlan region of Guatemala.  Now a daily hot lunch is provided to nearly 600 students in the schools of Panabaj (262 students), Chacaya (134) and La Cumbre (160).  Students are benefiting from lunches including meat, vegetables, and beans, which provide important nutritional benefits not otherwise available to them at home.  In the coming year, and with your support, Pueblo a Pueblo hopes to expand our program to provide valuable nutritional lunches in an additional two schools, contributing to increases in health as well as academic performance and attendance.
