Nicaragua: School Feeding Is An Ally of El Guineo’s mothers
In a modest wooden home on the main street of El Guineo, lives Juana Arauz and her six children, ages ranging from 5 to 20 years. To feed them Arauz washes clothes at a nearby river which is located 500 meters from her house. To ensure she has enough money to feed her children, she also chops wood and sells it during the afternoons. Four of her children go to school where they receive a daily hot meal. “Sometimes my kids are not hungry when they come home because the school has provided enough food to keep them full. For that reason I make sure that I do not miss when it is my turn to cook,” she said.
