How to use your country report

GCNF received responses to the 2019 Global Survey of School Meal Programs © from 103 countries, 85 of which had a large-scale school feeding program operating in their country and submitted a survey response. The responses received from these 85 countries are summarized in this available set of country reports.

Each country report provides a comprehensive overview of the standardized information collected about the school feeding program, including:

  • Target Group
  • Coverage
  • Modality
  • Food Sources
  • Budget
  • Complementary Programs
  • National Laws
  • Policies and Standards
  • Infrastructure
  • Nutrition
  • Agriculture
  • Employment and Community Participation
  • Successes and Challenges
  • Research Needs

Country reports can be used to share information and foster learning between countries as well as function as an advocacy tool to promote investment in school feeding programs through deeper knowledge.

The Global Child Nutrition Foundation works with a global network of governments, businesses, and civil society organizations to support school meal programs that help children and communities thrive. GCNF provides training, technical assistance, and networking opportunities to help governments build national school meal programs that are nutritious, locally-sourced, and ultimately independent from international aid.
