WFP Lebanon School Meals Programme Factsheet – July 2022
The WFP School Meals Programme Factsheet provides an overview of WFP’s School Meals programme in Lebanon, benefitting refugee and Lebanese students in public schools.

WFP’s intervention through the school meals programme aims to address the critical issue of limited primary education for Lebanese and Syrian children while preventing short-term hunger and improving children’s food consumption. For this, WFP partnered with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE) in 2016 to develop a school snacks programme with three components: the provision of nutritious daily school snacks, nutrition education, and health and nutrition summer camps.
