School food and nutrition in crisis contexts is an integral part of recovery operations and provides safety nets that aim to save lives, promote recovery, empower people and communities affected by emergency situations. The schools’ food and nutrition platforms are an important base for shock response and humanitarian assistance, while building communities resilience systems. This joint program aims to support the Permanent Secretariat of the Presidential Initiative "Provide each child of school age with at least one balanced meal per day" and the National School Food and Nutrition Program by : implementing an automated climate favourable system for conservation of agriculture products, improving agricultural production, forestry and fisheries, their connection to the school market and the supply of varied, balanced school meals based on local production. The joint program is part of the institutionalization of the national food program articulated with the production, marketing,and supply sectors with a focus on local menus.

This joint program thus •contributes to the optimal supply of schools with healthy and nutritious food through support for production, processing, conservation, and supply •contributes to institutionalizing support services for diversified, balanced, and appropriate school meals in a healthy environment with a view to their better participation in maintaining and improving the quality of learning in quality child-friendly schools. •builds capacity for better governance of the national school food and nutrition program at national and community level •strengthens the accountability systems of the national school food and nutrition program focusing on the effective management of monitoring/evaluation, gender, environment, and protection/security

Overall, the joint school feeding support program aims to contribute to improving the health, nutritional and cognitive status of school-age children through their equitable access to balanced, sufficient, and healthy food at school.
