Danone Specialized Nutrition Indonesia Helps School Canteens in 4 Cities in Indonesia
Various health protocols have been complied with by the community to prevent the spread of COVID-19, one of which is the suggestion to conduct activities from home, including school activities. This has affected the income of “Ibu Pengelola Kantin Sekolah Generasi Maju” (canteen managers) managed by Danone Specialized Nutrition (SN) Indonesia through PT Sarihusada Generasi Mahardhika (Sarihusada).
Julie Jones, Marketing Director of Danone Specialized Nutrition Indonesia, explained that, "Since 2010, Danone SN Indonesia through Sarihusada has routinely assisted hundreds of canteen managers in several Primary Schools in Indonesia, ranging from financial management education to providing balanced nutrition in the cafeteria food menu. With the reduction of teaching and learning activities in schools, canteen managers' incomes also declined. So, we are working with partners to help 234 women activists in healthy canteens in Ambon, Bandung, Bogor, and Yogyakarta. "
In collaboration with the Danone Ecosystem Fund and the Indonesian Food Storage Foundation, Danone SN Indonesia distributed support totaling more than IDR 1 billion in the form of direct cash assistance, basic food supplies in the form of e-vouchers to purchase family nutritional needs and others.
