Welcome to the 2024 Global Survey of School Meal Programs!

The Global Survey of School Meal Programs is the most comprehensive data collection on national and large-scale school feeding programs. The resulting data fills a critical knowledge gap by creating and maintaining an up-to-date global database of standardized information on school meal programs.

National governments are invited to designate a government-appointed focal point to complete the Global Survey of School Meal Programs. Data collection occurs from November 2023 through May 2024 and will collect information on the 2022 school year.

Every country has a designated Global Survey Associate to support government participation in the Survey. To be connected with the Global Survey Associate for your country, please contact
