An Update on School Feeding in Benin
During 2008, I interviewed Jacques Roy of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) in Benin. At that time, WFP's top priority for fighting hunger and poverty in the country was school feeding, and with good reason. Last week at a conference with members of the media, Josette Sheeran, the WFP director, said that "We need more success stories" in the fight against hunger. If the support is there at this critical juncture, Benin may very well be on its way to completing its own success story.
