Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821379747, Paperback)The global food, fuel, and financial crises have given new prominence to school feeding as a potential safety net and as a social support measure that helps keep children in school. Rethinking School Feeding: Social Safety Nets, Child Development, and the Educator Sector examines the evidence base for school feeding programs with the objective of better understanding how to develop and implement effective school feeding programs in two contexts: as a productive safety net that is part of the response to the social shocks of the global crises and as a fiscally sustainable investment in human capital, as part of long-term global efforts to achieve Education for All and to provide social protection to the poor. Today, every country for which we have information is seeking to provide food, in some way and at some scale, to its schoolchildren. The key issue today is not whether countries will implement school feeding programs, but how and with what objective. The near universality of school feeding provides important opportunities for WFP, the World Bank, and other development partners to assist governments in rolling-out productive safety nets as part of the response to the current global crises and to sow the seeds for school feeding programs to transition into fiscally sustainable investments in human capital in the future. Rethinking School Feeding will be useful to government agencies and nonprofit organizations working in education reform and food and nutrition policies.
