Almost 40 per cent of students in Fiji go without food everyday.
This was the discovery made by ACATA Trust during a study which they conducted recently.
The study found that children from poor families have no choice but to go to school on an empty stomach.
ACATA Executive Director Rosan Lal says another 60 per cent either do not have a balanced breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The study was conducted on 3000 students from 21 remote schools.
