According to Governor Johnson Sakaja, on typical school days, the programme will feed 250,000 kids.

“Our children get 650 grams of nutritious food per day and where we have been implementing it the children don’t even finish the food, they take some of that food back home. Because many people don’t realize that urban poverty many times bites harder than poverty in the rural areas,” Sakaja said.

According to Sakaja, since the scheme began, both student enrollment and academic achievement have increased.

The agreement between Machogu and Sakaja was signed under the direction of Finance Cabinet Secretary Prof. Njuguna Ndung’u.
