Roughly 300 million children have been without school meals and are at risk of hunger since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
And even before COVID, an estimated 73 million vulnerable children were not being reached with food at school. We know that number has risen in recent months. and will continue to rise without urgent action by government, the private sector, and civil society.
