HarvestPlus provides healthy meals for school children in India. The children receive a cooked, hot meal every day. The food is prepared from fortified crops and is particularly rich in nutrients. As a result, the children are not only healthier, but stay in school longer. In order to be able to source the food locally, farmers are trained in terms of variety selection and cultivation methods. The farmers, in turn, can secure their income. This creates a value chain from seed to school plate.
