The mission of the Children’s Nutrition Fund (CNF) is to provide food and education for children who would otherwise have to go without in Central-Eastern Europe. First in Hungary, and eventually within the entire region.

There are over 40,000 children in Hungary whose only source of warm food is the lunch meal they receive at school, so on weekends and holidays they are starving. More than 100,000 Hungarian children do not get the nutrition at home their growing bodies desperately need: they get no meat, no fruit, and no vegetables. They live on pasta, bread and and potatoes.

CNF provides food for these children and saves talent: our scholarship program offers high quality education for talented children living in poverty, whose dreams cannot otherwise be realized.
