Section: General News - U.S. Agricultural Attache David Wolf Wednesday led cabinet and local officials in launching in Metro Manila the USDA Food for Progress School Nutrition Program, which provides nutritional assistance to an estimated 85,000 public elementary school children.
The assistance is in the form of long shelf-life milk packs and fortified biscuits, which will be distribution starting November 15 until January 2011.
Distribution of this milk and fortified biscuits donated by the United States not only increases students' health, but could also increase school attendance rates and participation levels by the students while in school, said Wolf.
