CHANGSHA, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Yang Changhai, principal of the Tongmu Primary School in central China's Hunan province, is careful to log the expenses his school incurs for its free lunch program.
"Each item is recorded in detail. We are required to release the information online for public supervision," Yang said.
Yang's school, located in a remote mountainous area, is one of the beneficiaries of a charity project that helps hungry rural students by providing them with free lunches.
The "Free Lunch for Children" project was initiated by Deng Fei, a reporter for the Phoenix Weekly, in September 2011.
More than 500 other journalists have joined the cause since then, calling for public donations to improve nutrition for impoverished rural school children.
The project is now operated by the China Social Welfare Foundation.
So far, students at 178 rural schools in Hunan, Hubei, Guizhou and Yunnan provinces have received free lunches through the project, with another 300 schools applying to participate, said Dang Jun, vice secretary-general of the Free Lunch Foundation, a group affiliated with the project.
