Improving incomes in Ghana's School Feeding Programme

In February contracts were signed by beneficiaries of Ghana's School Feeding Programme, ensuring that caterers are able to purchase quality food directly from the farmers, allowing them to get good prices for farmer produce, and so that farmers have ready access to markets. 

The contract signing process has been facilitated by Imperial College London's Partnership for Child Development, in collaboration with the Government of Ghana and partners, and began in Ghana's Akwapim North District. The process was initiated after farmers and caterers highlighted the usefulness of such agreements during round table discussions held last year.

After contracts have been signed in the Akwaipim North District, the same event will be carried out across all 29 districts of Ghana where the GFSP is being implemented.
