Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa where our school feeding programme operates in Chipata Township, a small yet bustling town in the Eastern Province.

The country suffers from high rates of malnutrition, poverty and food insecurity, with many children out of school. For those children who are able to attend school, one million go there hungry.
