Academy School Feeding Program
Many of the school children don’t eat every day because their families have very little money. Sometimes they are given “cakes” made from mud to satisfy their hunger – this has no nutritional value and promotes diseases due to contamination. Many of our children regularly fainted from hunger at School Assembly before the Feeding Program was started.
In the last three months, we have fed 16,802 school children at a cost of $600 a week. Usually the meal consists of rice and beans and this might be served with coconut and a vegetable sauce. At present meals are provided three times a week but hopefully this can be increased to every school day if we can raise sufficient funds.
A dedicated kitchen has been built for this program and a few Haitian women and men are employed for cooking and supervising these meals. Nourishment of the brain and body is essential for the children to benefit from the education they are given.
Provide food for our children
Our school feeding programme gives you the option to make a regular monthly donation or one time donation.
We provide meals to 650—700 FML Academy students, three times a week and each meal costs $0.50. You can donate as much or as little as you like to help us.
This program is partially supported by proceeds from Feed My Lambs table at monthly Car Boot Sales at St. Mark’s Church and Peace Lutheran Church.

A donation of $25 will help us purchase a backpack filled with age-appropriate school supplies for a child at FML Academy.
For many of our children, a backpack will be the first gift they have ever received. This backpack will be provided at the beginning of the school year with vital supplies included.

Our Garden project enables our volunteers to purchase seeds, seedlings, fertilizer, equipment and livestock like chickens and goats.
Donating to our Garden project can be done on a one-off or regular basis and provides vital support in helping our team to feed all of the children at the Academy. Not only does it guarantee food, but it also provides much needed support to facilitate healthy meal prep and provision for all of our children.

Maintain Feed My Lambs
Regular maintenance helps protect our buildings and compound from routine wear and tear, guards against the yearly threat of hurricanes and also helps to keep everyone safe.
Our maintenance program helps avoid emergency repairs which tend to be more costly in the long run, and as we all know, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Donating to our maintenance programme can be done on a one-off or regular basis and we appreciate all donations – large or small.
