The Lunchbox Fund focusses on providing nutritious food to combat Micronutrient deficiencies in children whose diets are of low nutrient quality, or which lack dietary diversity. African Angels Independent School was accepted as a beneficiary partner of the Lunchbox Fund programme in 2017, and every school day since then our Angels receive a high protein, nutritionally fortified meal for lunch.
