Sourcing from local farmers

HGSF programmes provide an opportunity for smallholder farmers to benefit from access to a market with stable, structured, and predictable demand.

The documents available here are specifically relevant to agricultural and community members of the school feeding process.
Community:  Farmers, school children and teachers

Local community members are the keystone of home grown school feeding programmes.

From smallholder farmers to cooks and caterers to teachers and school-children, they comprise all elements of the school feeding supply chain and are integral to programme design and implementation.

The school feeding supply chain

Home grown school feeding can create jobs and profits not only for smallholder farmers, but also for a wide range of stakeholders involved in getting the food from the field to the classroom.

The school feeding supply chain includes those involved in the transportation, processing, and preparation of food.
Researchers and Practitioners

A growing body of research around HGSF is helping inform the design and implementation of national programmes.

This evidence base being generated by researchers and translated by practitioners continues to strengthen HGSF knowledge and operations.

School health and nutrition

Healthy, well-fed children learn better. HGSF programmes which integrate school health and nutrition interventions can improve educational acheivement.

The resources available here relate to the potential educational and nutritional benefits of HGSF programmes.
