NFSC started the breakfast project to help feed the children who were otherwise going to school hungry. Because resources of most families have been over extended in an attempt to care for the big numbers of orphaned children, some homes are able to provide only one meal a day which is usually in the evening. Many children were going to school hungry, forcing some of them to skip school in search of food. This project started in May 2000 with 60 children.

There are seven breakfast centers serving  over 8,000 children. The children receive breakfast every school day before they go to school. The breakfast consists of porridge made from maize meal & soy bean and a daily multivitamin.

Each center has a volunteer cook who takes roll-call and checks the general health of the children.

Each center also has a community committee that helps in verification of need for recruited children.
