School Lunches Around the World - Zambia
School lunch in Zambia is nshima. Actually, pretty much everyone's lunch in Zambia is nshima—breakfast and dinner too. The starchy dish of white cornmeal cooked to a thick, sticky dough is the staple food of the entire population. It's eaten with your hands and dipped into relishes made from greens, dried sardines called kapenta, or stewed soy protein.
