Hungry children wait for free snacks


SCHOOLS in poverty-stricken areas of Malaga are still waiting for snack-bags for children at risk of malnutrition.

Many children rely on the bags, containing cartons of fruit juice or milkshake, a sandwich and a piece of fruit, for their evening meals.

Headmasters have been demanding the service since the beginning of the school year, yet snack bags were only distributed on December 18 and 19 and not to all schools and so far this year catering companies have not been given orders to recommence distribution.

The project began in 2013 under a Nutritional Guarantee Plan which aimed to ensure poverty-stricken children were fed. During the last school year 5,000 children were given free school lunches and breakfast and snack bags.
