Advocacy Materials

As part of the WFP school meals programme, WFP and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE) established the school kitchens model in 2021 to enhance the nutritional content of meals provided to primary school students. Under this model, each student is provided with a daily meal consisting of a traditional cold sandwich, complemented with a serving of fresh fruits or vegetables. The programme is implemented by WFP cooperating partners who initially procured the food ingredients centrally from their contracted wholesaler while 110 mothers of children enrolled in the programme prepare the cold meals. This personal investment of mothers ensures that every meal is prepared with care.
