We started The Munch Club in order to tackle a serious problem that so many schools in South Africa are facing: the fact that many children arrive at school hungry. They’ve often traveled long distances to attend classes and often have no lunch with them. How can a child learn on an empty stomach?
Many kids qualify for free school lunches, but lots of schools simply don’t have the budget or the resources to provide reliable food security. That’s where The Munch Club comes in, creating an opportunity for people to sponsor a child to join a healthy feeding scheme.
