Home-Grown School Feeding Resource Framework

With the rapid evolution of home-grown school feeding (HGSF) and the emergence of several new HGSF tools, GCNF has worked with several partners to develop a resource package to harmonize existing tools that support government planning and implementation processes. The HGSF Resource Framework aims to help governments design, plan, and implement their own programs, selecting what they need from the most current and reviewed tools.

The Resource Framework is meant to guide countries in using the latest tools and documented best practices that link school feeding with local smallholder farm production and nutrition. Furthermore, it will support governments and program implementers with a step-by-step process to designing and planning their HGSF programs. The Resource Framework was introduced at the 2016 Global Child Nutrition Forum and updates to the Framework will be shared at upcoming Forums.

The HGSF Resource Framework is the result of collaboration by the World Food Programme (WFP), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Global Child Nutrition Foundation (GCNF), Partnership for Child Development (PCD), New Partnerships for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and the WFP Centre of Excellence against Hunger in Brazil (WFP CoE).

The Resource Framework was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Governments of Canada, Norway and Brazil; GCNF supporter West Star Foundation; and WFP private sector partner Stop Hunger.
