This strategic evaluation analysed the role of WFP in ending long-term hunger. Three activities were identified to contribute to that goal: MCHN,SF and FFW/A.  
 
Based on overall evaluation findings, the team concluded that long-term hunger cannot be tackled in isolation.  This conclusion led to one of the six recommendations; WFP should approach hunger holistically, integrating short-term and long-term hunger solutions.  The other five recommendations are related to each of the five evaluation questions, common to all four strategic evaluations in this series.
School Meals
18 November 2011

With US$2,5 million in European Union Food Facility funding, Bolivia’s rural schools, small farmer associations and communities have developed new ways to produce and market food, making them more resistant to the shocks of soaring global food prices and natural disasters. EU aid has also helped link small farmers into larger food production chains, helping to lift them out of poverty and into the mainstream economy.

 The Annual Evaluation Report for 2010 focuses on operational issues arising from evaluations of country portfolios and operations, and impact evaluations of selected school feeding programmes.

The findings reaffirm WFP’s corporate areas of strength in responding to emergencies under the most difficult circumstances and in providing school feeding, as one of the Programme’s flagship programmes. However, impact evaluations of these programmes also showed the importance of implementing school feeding in cooperation with partners who invest in education sector improvements. Areas where largest improvements can be made relate to food-for-work, where funding often is curtailed and thus strategic objectives moved beyond reach, and nutrition where the ambiguous objectives and small size of programmes make it difficult to demonstrate results.
