Name:Chile’s school feeding programme: targeting experience

The Chilean School Feeding Programme’s (SFP) main objective is to provide social and food assistance to low income children attending public schools. It targets 1,2 million children daily with meals provided by local food companies.

There are two models, one for children in primary and the other for those in secondary schools, both based on variables gathered from first and ninth graders respectively and determined by a logistic regression analysis.
