Schools Encouraged To Follow National Dietary Guidelines
Schools that benefit from the Zero Hunger Project are expected to improve their operation, with careful consideration for proper nutrition and food preparation. This expectation comes with the realization of workshops for important stakeholders in the School Feeding Programme.
The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Zero Hunger Trust Fund, conducted the workshops in synergy with the National Dietary Guidelines and Nutrition Standards for school meals.
The workshops took place on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th October for selected teachers and supervisors of the School Feeding Programme, and Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd November for the helpers of the programme. The sessions took place at the Kingstown Methodist Church Hall.
