Zonnebloem School

Feeding Scheme

 
 
 
What

 

The Otto Foundation established a school kitchen on the Zonnebloem Estate, and is partnering with the Peninsula School Feeding Association to serve breakfast and lunch to up to 160 learners every school day. 

 

 

Why

 

According to the South African Child Gauge “extreme poverty and malnutrition compromise children’s cognitive development” - thus contributing to poor education outcomes in South Africa. 

 

Research shows that school feeding schemes can “improve the nutritional status of children, improve school attendance, encourage learners to stay on throughout primary and into secondary school, and improve cognitive performance.”
