Malnutrition and Hunger- Mid-Day Meal Programme
According to the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), about 18% of India’s population was undernourished as at the end of 2012. The population of under nourished children is even more. This is where our Mid-Day Meal Project comes in. RCBMT is a top donor in RI District 3140 to the Mid-Day Meal Programme, implemented by our partner-in-service: ISKCON Food Relief Foundation (FRF). This Programme improves attendance, increased retention rate with fewer dropouts rates.
District Governor Rtn Lata Subraidu has put the Mid-Day Meal Programme as a thrust project for the current Rotary Year.
