Based at a rural Ugandan school run by Australian not-for-profit organisation, School For Life, the Food Ladder system was introduced in an effort to reduce their $100,000 per annum food bill. With 680 students and 120 staff members, each child and teacher is fed three nutritious meals a day.  

The Food Ladder system not only provides food, but education opportunities for students and parents alike, centred around agriculture, nutrition and STEM technology. In a bid to become self-sufficient School for Life aim to sell any excess produce to local retailers and hotels, in the nearby capital, Kampala.
