Sejun* age 11, lives in Lalitpur, on the south side of Kathmandu Valley. He was one of 50 children who arrived at the NYF Community Nutrition Kitchen during the first week we ran it. As a growing boy, his appetite wouldn’t slow down just because there’s a lockdown – and making food stretch from week to week is exhausting and nerve-wracking for his mother. When they heard that NYF would be providing free hot lunches for children like Sejun, there was no question about it. The day of our Community Nutrition Kitchen in Lalitpur, they put on their masks and walked down to the public school, where NYF staff members were waiting with steaming pots full of rice, daal (lentil soup), curry, sautéed spinach, tomato achar, lito (super flour), carrots and cucumbers. This provided a complete nutritional meal for the day.
So many children like Sejun visited NYF’s Community Nutrition Kitchens to receive free lunches during the lockdown. We’re so thankful for our incredible supporters for helping to make that possible!
