The Namibian School Feeding Programme

School Feeding has been an integral part of the government’s strategy to address inequalities and expand access to educational opportunities to disadvantaged children, particularly orphans and vulnerable school learners. Since 1990s, the school feeding programme in Namibia has received strong political support as evidenced  in the various legal and policy instruments in which it is embedded. The fourth National Development Plan also recognises the role of school feeding  in addressing the nutritional needs of  children. The Ministry of Education (MOE) will therefore continue to support efforts aimed at strengthening the school feeding programme in Namibia so that it could contribute to the realisation of the National Development goals.
