Nigerian government’s school feeding programme resumes May 14

About 3,131,971 children are expected to benefit as the Federal Government resumes its Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP) on Thursday, May 14.

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development in a statement on Tuesday said the programme will begin in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun states.

The ministry in the statement signed by Deputy Director of Information, Rhoda Iliya said consultation and collaboration with state governments identified the distribution of Take-Home Rations (THR) to the households of the children on the programme as a feasible method of achieving this directive after exploring several options.

The ministry solicits the support of state governments in deploying security agents to ensure the safety of beneficiaries, sensitize the communities and programme personnel on the need to ensure that this intervention reaches the intended beneficiaries and facilitate the timely delivery of quality food supplies provided by the state aggregators.
