Feed the Hungry San Miguel is a unique model for alleviating hunger among preschool and elementary children in San Miguel and surrounding communities by building and operating kitchens on state school property. Its Meals Program helps increase school attendance and improve learning retention through nutrition education classes, healthier food choices and improved diets. The organization provides nutritious meals to more than 4,000 children every school day of the year at a cost of nearly US$0.60 cents per meal, or less than US$3 per week, per child. For some of these children, it is their only meal of the day.
