This boy from rural Senegal isn’t old enough to go to class yet, but he can still enjoy a healthy meal of daharine, a nutritious porridge of rice, chickpeas, and peanut sauce, at a USAID-support Community Meals program based at the local school. Part of the Feed the Future initiative, USAID/Senegal’s unique Agro-Nutrition project provides meals from locally produced crops rich in micro-nutrients from to more than 230 of the most food-insecure districts in the country.
