Support for WFP School Meals Programme in Tunisia

Titre : Support for WFP School Meals Programme in Tunisia

Pays : Tunisie

Durée : 26-Nov-2018 to 30-Sep-2024

In Tunisia, the World Food Programme (WFP) is providing technical support and advice to the Government in its work to strengthen social protection programmes as a tool to enhance social cohesion. The national school meals programme is central to efforts to improve nutrition, support communities in rural areas and promote the empowerment of women. Through the sourcing of up to 30 percent of the food served in school canteens from school gardens tended by community-based organizations – mainly made up of local women – WFP is improving the nutritional value of school meals, while boosting local economies and the participation in women in them. Further employment opportunities are created by involving local unemployed youths in the delivery of meals prepared in centralized canteens. To support WFP in Tunisia, UNOPS was tasked with the evaluation of rehabilitation needs of three satellite school’s canteens ; to develop the technical specifications and to rehabilitate the infrastructures and refurbish these school’s canteens. This upgrade of selected school canteens and kitchens will enable the preparation of nutritious, hot meals in the framework of the National School Meals Programme
