Feeding Quechuan Children

Feeding Quechuan Children

Results: Final Report

For most Quechuan families living in the harsh, unforgiving and remote Andes Mountains, eating nutrient-rich food is rare due to the high cost of growing and transporting fresh items. As a result, potatoes are the mainstay of many families’ diets which unfortunately contributes to the malnutrition suffered by the children.

Thanks to donations from the Lee Oneness Foundation starting in June of 2010, 532 students from the Huama and Chumpepokes community schools benefited from a meal program consisting of a protein and vegetable rich stews every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for six months.
