Kids from three schools in China accepted Iraqi Big Picture Foundation member, Anmar M’s challenge.  He suggested that BPF global kids share meals with each other.  Thoughtfully aligning with our mission, “kids’ use the arts for global community building,” Anmar pointed out that coming together to eat is a sign of true friendship.  Best-in-Show winners, May, Martina, ZhiHao, Yike, Lucia, and Lisa take you on a culinary tour of China, thereby affirming their friendship with you, our BPF kids around the world.

Nutriendo El Futuro, Barrio El Calvario, el Hatillo, Caracas

Nutriendo El Futuro offers daily dinner to 100 children aged 2 to 8 years old every afternoon from 5:00 – 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  This is the only time of the day that most of the children eat.  The center is financed through private and business donations, mostly from those who, after visiting the site, commit assistance. The children’s mothers attend to cooking, maintenance, and childcare.
