14 Whole Foods Market Team members have been working in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala to contribute towards our educational program and learn about the importance of our work. In addition to providing instructional support in the classroom, the TM’s have been helping with the food program.

We have continued to supply the students with their corn-meal based atol drink. 1000 pounds of vitamin-fortified corn meal, sugar, spices and rice are being supplied after the government subsidy was discontinued due to budget cuts.

As proven over the years, school meals are so important in both maintaining a consistent attendance levels and helping these children to concentrate when at school.
