Feeding Points in DRC

Hands at Work community organisations in DRC recently made the shift from food parcels for vulnerable children to feeding points. Feeding points are localized cooking points for children to attend daily to receive a hot, nutritious meal, rather than receiving monthly packages of food at home, where it is often misused or stolen from them. Feeding points provide a place for local volunteers to see the child getting the nutritious meal, and allow for daily checkups and more regular monitoring of the children’s health.
