As Project Japale Goune wraps up for this school year, we have been tallying final figures and realized that we have served about 10,000 meals each year!
Who would have thought, when we started this project four years ago, that we would get this far? Thank you to all our donors for making it possible.
Another exciting factoid is that we have reduced the cost of lunches considerably since we began, and that 10,000th lunch cost only $0.49! Because the school is contributing nearly half of the project’s cost, that means that feeding a student one lunch now only costs us $0.25.
We are grateful to have made it this far and to be able to continue to do this work.
