Goal action plan

The Namibia Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture commits to maintain the School Feeding Programme, while improving the nutritional value of meals, hereby increasingly using a home-grown approach that involves using more own and locally produced foods. The programme will also be extended to Secondary schools and also to integrated early childhood development centres, which will then fall under the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture's responsibility.
