264 million kids, most from rural areas of the developing world, are not in school because of hunger (UNESCO, 2015). These are children of farmers and fisherfolk who feed us and our families. The ARK Lunch solves that problem and produces tangible results:

INSPIRE COMMUNITIES TO GO ALL IN

AND SECURE FOOD AND EDUCATION FOR LIFE

Parents and teachers lead and inspire others to invest. With their own time and dime, they create gardens and kitchens from scratch. Each parent takes time off from work to come to school and make the lunches. They learn to use Excel to track every dollar and impact.
