2022—The Joint Transition Strategy Towards a Nationally Owned Home-Grown School Feeding Programme

Author: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport and WFP
The Joint School Feeding Transition Strategy outlines the initial phase of handover of school feeding implementation and management from WFP to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of Cambodia.

In 2020, the Royal Government of Cambodia started to take over the provision of school meals from WFP. In 2022, the national programme provides meals to schoolchildren in 290 schools and aims to grow incrementally to achieve full national ownership by 2028, while receiving appropriate national, sub-national and school-level capacity transfer from WFP to implement the programme.
