Food 4 Education


In Africa, millions of children go to school hungry and struggle to learn – study after study shows that lunch improves learning. Food for Education provides a nutritious daily lunch to primary school children in Kenya, using a scalable hub-and-spoke model of production and distribution. 

Wawira is a nutritionist from Kenya. She earned a degree in Nutrition Science from the University of South Australia and launched Food 4 Education upon graduation. She has been recognized for her school-feeding work by Spark International, the University of Cape town, the GSBI/Miller Center, the Stanford Design school, and the DRK Foundation.
