Food4Education, a Kenyan non-profit, is providing meals to 4 million primary school children in Kenya to boost school attendance. The organization operates a food truck that delivers hot meals to schools and uses a mobile money transfer app called M-Pesa for parents to pay for the meals. The meals are priced at KSh 30 ($0.20), with some schools receiving subsidies from county governments. The initiative has had a positive impact on school attendance and academic performance. Food4Education sources food directly from farmers and uses technology and smart supply chain to sustainably deliver the meals.
