An additional rural school kitchen – Fajardo de Bocas (88) – is opened.

Late in the year, FTHSM undertakes a major initiative to link nutrition education to its school meals. The “Family Nutrition Education” (FNE) program will measure the nutritional health of each child participating in and benefiting from Feed the Hungry’s meals from its school kitchens. It provides counseling to mothers of the school children and conducts workshops for these women in the villages on the fundamentals of family nutrition.
