School feeding in Ghana. Investment case: cost-benefit analysis report

Case Studies & Research
48 p.

The Ghana Cost Benefit Analysis was conducted to bring to the attention of government and other stakeholders in school feeding, the investment returns that school feeding yields, and to see school feeding not just as a cost, but as an investment in the Ghana’s human capital and the economy at large. The contribution of school feeding to improving human capital cannot be underestimated; therefore, school feeding should remain a priority for all successive government. This should be supported by legislation. Addressing the challenges that affect the programme should be a priority to help maximize the investment potential of the programme and promote sustainability. These should be addressed within the set of recommended actions in this analysis report, as well as recommendations from other school feeding operational assessment reports.
