This is made possible with an estimated annual investment of $4.3 billion, primarily funded from government budgets.The World Food Programme (WFP) has over 50 years of experience in school feeding (SF) and was one of the first partners of many governments in the region in the introduction, implementation and expansion of school feeding programmes.
