    Strengthening School Feeding Programmes in the Caribbean - FAO-SLC Issue brief #13 2015

    School feeding programmes in the Caribbean, as elsewhere, have long been established and recognised as an important instrument in facilitating learning, especially for poor and vulnerable school children. More recently, in Latin America and the Caribbean, while school feeding programmes (SFPs) maintain their original purpose, the goals of these programmes, as well as the forms of delivery of the assistance have evolved. Experience with SFPs elsewhere, primarily in Brazil, has prompted Caribbean governments to consider SFPs as an integral part of their social protection and development strategy.

    The publication, developed within the framework of the school feeding project of the Brazil-FAO International Cooperation Program, aims to share some experiences and the development of the process of elaboration and implementation of legal and regulatory frameworks on school feeding, and to identify some fundamental elements for its development. It is aimed at parliamentarians, policymakers, actors in the school community and those people and professionals who have the interest, will and intention to develop a Bill in favour of school feeding. The publication indicates paths, advances and challenges faced by the various nations of Latin America and the Caribbean for the strengthening, consolidation and institutionalization of their school feeding programs, as a fundamental public policy in guaranteeing the human right to adequate and healthy food in the school environment.

    Tasty and waste-free food – The alternative to improve the use of public resources in School Feeding Programmes in Latin America and the Caribbean
    Case studies in three countries
    2021
    Also available in:

    The inclusion of gastronomy in the School Feeding Programs (PAE) of Latin America and the The Caribbean is a way of strengthening these programs, by improving their efficiency through increase in acceptance and intake in menus and decrease in food waste. In this context and with the objective of guiding the countries of the region in the inclusion of gastronomy in their own PAE, this publication presents three case studies in Chile, Colombia and Guatemala. Taking into account the current COVID-19 pandemic context, this publication also includes a food safety guide intended to be applied in the different modalities of the SAPs as long as schools are back to normal. The guide is divided into three sections: 1) Planning the reopening, 2) Implementation of good practices that guarantee the application of the principles of food safety and reduce the spread of COVID-19 and 3) Monitoring actions and follow-up during reopening. These guidelines are a compilation of the evidence so far available that will serve as support in this great task of continuing with the vital delivery of food to the students.
