African-led school feeding at scale.

See how 300,000 kids Tap2Eat every day

Hungry kids can’t learn.

Without proper food, children lack the strength, attention span and interest in learning. Almost 80% of children in Kenyan public primary schools have no access to a nutritious school meal. Fragmented, small-scale school feeding programs exist, but often operate with limited consideration of the local context or are unaffordable for parents.

We’re delivering affordable, nutritious meals at scale.

Our audacious vision

A world where no child has to learn on an empty stomach.

Full of dietary diversity, a single Food for Education meal gives kids the extra calories, carbohydrates, proteins, and micronutrients their bodies and brains need to concentrate and grow healthy and strong. By 2030, we aim to feed 3,000,000 children a day across 3 African countries. Filling tummies and awakening possibilities.
