Feed Minds, Change Lives School Feeding: Highlights and New Directions

Feed Minds, Change Lives is a compilation of the most recent analytical work undertaken in 2009 on the subject of school feeding. It details the key concepts and actions necessary to achieve greater and more rapid gains in eliminating child hunger, while contributing to human development. The way forward is now apparent for establishing nationally owned, nationally led, locally sourced school feeding programmes. Successful programmes are aligned with national policy frameworks; receive stable funding and budgeting; are designed based on sound evidence; include strong partnerships and intersectoral coordination; and are supported by committed community participation.
