42 p.

This guide aims to help multisector actors to address the food security and nutrition needs of children during periods of extended or intermittent school closure due to a pandemic or other emergency. The collaboration of schools and food banks in this effort is the primary focus. The guide takes you through six steps for developing an emergency response plan for a school feeding program. Throughout the guide are boxes with important information and insights as well as country examples that illustrate the strength and creativity that can emerge from strong partnerships. The guide also provides a library of technical resources to further assist with specific aspects of your emergency response planning. It complements the Developing a School Feeding Program guide, which was also developed by GFN and GCNF.
