GVI Phoenix feeds San Rafael and Barbasco in Honduras!

The Honduran government provides its public schools with rice, beans, maiz, and oil so that the primary school students can have a hot, filling meal…though not this year. Normally the government food can expect to arrive sometime in February, but this year we still have yet to receive it. However, thanks to the hard work and money raised by past and current GVI Phoenix volunteers, the students at San Rafael and Barbasco have continued to receive the daily school lunch that they should.

Every week for the past two months staff members have purchased 55 pounds of rice, 55 pounds of beans, and 30 pounds of maiz to feed the 140 students that attend both schools. GVI Phoenix will continue to buy these amounts of food until the government food arrives. Thank you so much volunteers for making this possible!
