In September 2016, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) signed a five-year agreement, ensuring a second phase of Learning and Engaging All in Primary School (LEAPS II). From 2012 – 2016, LEAPS I served nearly 16,000,000 meals and increased student attendance by 38%.
