Project Report | May 27, 2022
Food security for Colombian children

By Lina Barrantes | Fundraising Coordinator

Malnutrition is a wake-up call to those who want to respect life in Colombia. Hunger denounces inequality and is a heartbreaking image of the extreme poverty many people face in our country. In 2021, more than 560.000 Colombian children – under five- suffered from chronic malnutrition, and 21 million people couldn't afford three daily meals.

We must give our children the nutrients their bodies need to stay healthy, active, and strong. In Colombia, the only daily food many children receive is the one they get at their daycare center or school. For this reason, the driving force behind this program is to guarantee food security for the most vulnerable and precious: our children.

From zero to five years of age, a child who does not receive the essential nutrients would grow less, learn more slowly, and won't develop to its fullest. Our goal is to provide meals that include all food categories in the required quantity according to the nutritional recommendations for the age range. Meals are of good quality and defined according to Colombian traditions. The meals served at schools or care centers are usually for kids whose parents are working long hours and can't take care of all the needs of their children.

We are very grateful for the kind hearts of our donors who, through GlobalGiving, joined in with acts of generosity and solidarity to transform the lives of Colombian children.

Thank you for supporting the Bogotá Food Bank and being part of this crusade against hunger. Our daily task is to ensure that food in Colombia becomes a right and not a privilege.
