RC Loyola Heights (www.rclh.org) adopted fifty (50) Grade 7 students for school year 2017-2018 who will receive free and nutritious lunches three times a week starting July 2017.

 Forming part of the continuing support provided to the Jose P. Laurel Sr. High School’s School-based Feeding Program since 2013, students with the lowest body mass index, identified as underweight and undernourished, are chosen to be the recipients of nutrient-rich meals.

 Food preparation is done with the help of the school’s Techonology and Livelihood Education (TLE) Department under the aegis of nutritionist, Rotarian Cristy Tanjangco.

 With over 200 students fed since 2013, the project has yielded concrete results such as a marked increase in the students’ body mass index, 85% decrease in absenteeism and drop-out rates as well as improved overall health.

 The World Bank itself defines school feeding programs as “targeted social safety nets that provide both educational and health benefits to the most vulnerable children, thereby increasing enrollment rates, reducing absenteeism, and improving food security at the household level.”

You too can help us feed these children in need – Even a small amount will go a long way
