Basic Education On Board With School Meals

More than 9 million children benefit from the school nutrition programme. There have been many hiccups along the way, but the programme was recently brought back and made available to all learners in need.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) said the National School Nutrition programme will be continuing throughout the 4-week public school break. However, some schools have seen a drop in learners coming to school to collect meals. 

Even with this, the DBE insists that it is committed to providing meals to learners who are back at school and ones who are remaining at home. 

The North West Department of Education has encouraged all parents to visit a school near them to claim meals on behalf of learners.

This is because many learners did not show up to school to claim meals on the first few days of the break.

"As a department we have been instructed by the court to prepare meals for the learners even when schools are closed. Today our schools have prepared the food and unfortunately learners didn't turn up and this creates a fruitless expenditure. Hence I am appealing to parents to allow those who stay nearby schools to collect their food", said MEC Matsemela.

The department said it will continue to implement the Standard operating procedures of Covid-19 regulations whenever learners collect their meals at schools.

The school feeding programme is in action throughout all provinces.
