WFP, Education Ministry sign deal on school feeding programme

The United Nations World Food Programme and the Ministry of Education have signed an agreement with the Liberian Ministry of Education to strengthen the ministry’s school feeding programme, a WFP official told IRIN today.

Commenting on a report today by Liberia’s independent Star Radio, the official said WFP had already rehabilitated the offices of the ministry’s school feeding division and provided a vehicle, computers, communications sets and stationery. WFP Country Director Arnt Breivik puts the total cost of the project at US $80,000, Star Radio said. He said the facilities would enable the division to collect vital statistics on the programme. The data, he said, would help the division cater for the needy students.
