In 2021, the Company ensured access by 4.000 children and adolescents from vulnerable social groups to adequate food of high nutritional value.
For a third consecutive year,
The Company ensured the distribution of a total of 18.509 healthy food by addressing nutrition-related problems and enhancing children’s proper dietary choices. The quantitative and qualitative analysis results following the Program’s completion show that the daily feeding of students reduces food in security and hunger, promotes the physical and mental health of children, and improves their dietary habits. In addition, the average food insecurity index decreased significantly by 23.3% while 73,3% of students stopped experiencing severe hunger by the end of the program.
During the pandemic, the nutritional needs of vulnerable social groups increased, making it imperative to participate in the program by offering food quantities and types of food mostly needed for a year. A total of 61,338 glasses of milk and cereals were distributed to 3,784 children, 149 of whom live in 6 institutions and 1,448 are disabled children.
The Company’s aim is to bring its cooperation in 2022 and to contribute even further to the eradication of hunger and the reduction of food in security among children from vulnerable social groups. As early as 2018, the Company has secured the distribution of 77.804 school healthy meals to 768 children of 21 kindergartens, primary schools, and high schools through the ‘Nutrition’ program.
