*About the Summer Vacation Children’s Food Support project
The project is designed to help households facing financial difficulty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, it focuses on addressing the issue that child nutrition tends to suffer during long vacations when they lose access to school meals. The various products provided by supporting companies (19 companies as of June 23, 2021) are delivered directly to children in 3,000 households.
