Global School Feeding Sourcebook: Lessons from 14 countries

News

The Global School Feeding Sourcebook: Lessons from 14 countries was produced in response to demand from governments and development partners for guidance on designing and implementing large-scale, sustainable, national school-feeding programmes that can meet globally approved standards. The Sourcebook documents and analyses government-led school-feeding programmes to provide decision-makers and practitioners worldwide with the knowledge, evidence and good practice they need to strengthen their national school-feeding efforts. 

Based on high-level collaboration with government teams from 14 countries (Botswana, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Chile, Côte D’Ivoire, Ecuador, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mali, Mexico, Namibia, Nigeria and South Africa), the Sourcebook includes a compilation of concise and comprehensive country case studies. Programmes are examined in terms of Five Quality Standards that are needed for school-feeding programmes to be sustainable and effective. These standards include: design and implementation; policy and legal frameworks; institutional arrangements; funding and budgeting; and community participation. The review highlights the trade-offs associated with alternative school-feeding models and analyses the overarching themes, trends and challenges that run across them. 

The Sourcebook is free to download at www.hgsf-global.org and www.wfp.org
