Dear native English speakers,
does this sentence make sense?
"TFT does more than just proved children with hot, nutritious meals."

If it does, what does the verb "prove" mean here? Guarantee?

I can't find the structure of "prove someone with something" in my dictionaries.

Context:
TFT does more than just proved children with hot, nutritious meals. As school lunches are provided for them, the children no longer have to prepare a meal to take to school. This has encouraged more children to go to school. After attending classes regularly, many realize the joy of learning and are motivated to study more. The proportion of students who go on to junior high school has steadily risen as a result.

Thanks in advance.

Hirashin

Where did this text come from?

No it doesn't make any sense, because it is an error. The word should be "provide", not "proved".

Thanks for the help, joadbres. I checked the textbook and found it is "provided" in the original text. But it is changed into "proved" in the digital data of the textbook for some reason. So I was confused.
