Summary

Thrive's mission is to deliver healthy meals to hungry schoolchildren. Since 2012, we have fed 3 million school meals across two countries, with the support of over 1,500 donors and hundreds of volunteers. And more children need us. Post-pandemic, 25% more children face daily hunger, and our immediate waitlist is more than 5,000 schoolchildren.

Challenge

Children need food. When school meals are coupled with education, children's lives are transformed, like Louie Jay, who credits his success and scholarship to the daily school meals provided by Thrive.

Solution

Thrive's daily healthy meal deliveries provide school children a head start to the most crucial part of their day, which allows them to better focus on learning. Each simple, nutritious meal consists of a hard-boiled egg or nuts, a banana, and a pesticide-free, seasonal fruit or vegetable, and milk once a week. With a full belly, children are much more attentive and ready and eager to learn.

Long-Term Impact

Directors and teachers of schools that benefit from Thrive's feeding program have consistently reported higher attendance rates and a greater desire to learn. These factors will have a direct impact on academic performance and may also decrease the likelihood of dropping out. By continuing their education and growing into contributing members of society, children have the potential to break the cycle of poverty.
