No they do not have hot dinners in Zambia. All of the children go home for their lunch. Some children might bring a small snack into school with them such as corn on the cob, sweet potatoes and mangoes. Some of the children can't afford a snack so they don't eat anything all day. Other children have biscuits and crisps if their parents have more money.
