Nourishing minds and bodies of sponsored children.
It is another sad reality of Zambia today that many of the country’s underprivileged children face chronic hunger and malnutrition. Family Legacy sees to it that sponsored children have adequate nutrition during the school day.
A nutritious, hot meal, every day
The Legacy Academy school lunch program ensures that all students receive a hot, nutritious meal complete with vitamins and protein. This daily sustenance has been developed in the U.S. for the special needs of Third World children.
The hot lunch program fuels children’s bodies – and minds, too. Students keep up their attendance in part because they look forward to a wholesome, hot lunch each day.
Involving caregivers to transform a mindset
Our nutrition program furthers our children’s development in another way – involving their caregivers.
Caregivers are recruited to help serve lunch to the schoolchildren in a strategic PTA-like partnership. They see firsthand how the Legacy Academy imparts character, knowledge, and self-worth into the children. This, in turn, improves home life in a country where children are too often considered a burden.
