This year’s Ghana School Feeding Program (GSFP) will begin on Tuesday, September 7, as students return to school after a long break.

In each of the 16 regions, all caterers have been instructed to begin providing services to their respective beneficiary schools.

As a result of President Nana Akufo-decision Addo’s to release funds to settle the 1st term arrears of the caterers, a total of 3,448,065 students are expected to benefit.

In a press release issued by the National Coordinator, Dr. Gertrude QuashigaH, this information was revealed.

In preparation for the program, the caterers have thoroughly cleaned their kitchens and implemented all COVID-19 protocols.

In addition, all Caterers are encouraged to perform well throughout the term in order to ensure that the beneficiary students are fed with the right quality and quantity of food during the 67 school-going days. A portion of the statement read, “Caterers should strictly adhere to the COVID-19 protocols in accordance with Government’s directive to reduce the spread of the pandemic.”

Additionally, the caterers have been applauded for their perseverance, patience, and dedication to their work.

Akufo-Addo should approve their request for an increase in the feeding grant per child in order to help ease the caterers’ burden.
