    The endorsement of the National School Feeding Programme (Projecto de Alimentação Escolar—PRONAE) by the Mozambican Council of Ministers in 2013 represented a key stage in the institutionalization of school feeding and local food purchases in the country’s education system. This publication presents analysis on the divide between policy change and effective implementation. An FAO project, the Purchase from Africans for Africa (PAA Africa), is assessed regarding its demonstrative effect and contributions to enlarge the knowledge basis for translating policy change in effective purchases of food from smallholders for a diversified food basket at schools. The need for a regulatory framework better suited to purchasing from small farmers and to promote and ensure food safety, the coordination with agricultural services, and a dedicated budget are pointed out, among others, as necessary to translate the PRONAE's goals in effective implementation.

    Strengthening Capacities to Operate Government-Led Home-Grown School Food Initiatives in Ethiopia and Senegal - GCP/GLO/775/ITA 2022
    Also available in:

    Home Grown School Feeding (HGSF) is a school feeding model that provides children in schools with safe, diverse and nutritious food sourced locally from smallholders. The benefits of HGSF go beyond education and nutrition to tackle livelihoods of smallholder farmers and local communities. However, building links between school feeding programmes and local and smallholder agriculture production requires adjustments and reforms at institutional, policy and regulatory levels. This includes the alignment of public procurement laws, regulations and related practices. Against this background, building on the previous experience of the Purchase from Africans for Africa (PAA Africa) programme designed and implemented by FAO and the World Food Programme (WFP) to support HGSF, the project aimed to enhance the technical capacity of the governments of Ethiopia and Senegal to operate their current HGSF initiatives. The project also provided additional options for decision making on supply chain and business models, operational modalities, adapted procurement regulatory frameworks and contractual options, for an inclusive public procurement of a diversified school food basket.

    School feeding and possibilities for direct purchases from family farming
    Case studies for eight countries

    Also available in:

    We hope this publication “School feeding and possibilities for direct purchases from family farming in Latin American countries” contributes to the articulation of the sectors involved with school feeding, in the search for alternatives for the institutionalization and strengthening of school feeding policies in the countries; equally, it is hoped that in the medium and long term SFPs can contribute to the human right to food (HRF) and to sustainable human development
