400,000 more pupils to benefit from School Feeding Programme

School children in Ghana

Four hundred thousand more pupils are to benefit from the Ghana School Feeding Programme, beginning the 2013/2014 academic year. This will bring the total number of pupils benefiting under the initiative to two million.

Currently, 1.6 million pupils are benefiting from the programme, which is in its eighth year. “Various districts are submitting names of schools but we want to make sure that we do not deviate from the selection criteria. So we are taking the names and we would have a sample check to make sure that the schools we are going to select conform with the criteria that we have,” the National Coordinator of the programme, Mr S.P. Adamu, told the Daily Graphic in Accra.

He stated that from a humble beginning “we are now feeding 1,600,000 pupils from 4,920 public primary schools throughout the country”.
