|English||In the broadest sense, home-grown school feeding (HGSF) is a school feeding programme that provides food produced and purchased within a country to the extent possible. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has collaborated with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and other partners to develop an approach to HGSF. This document is a culmination of these efforts. It focuses in particular on linking school feeding programmes with local small-scale farmer production by creating an ongoing market for small landholders (“smallholders”).
More in-depth case studies are also available for Home-Grown School Feeding Programmes in four countries (Brazil, Ghana, India and Thailand).
This study is an useful tool for policy makers.|
