WINDHOEK: The Chief Inspector of the Namibian School Feeding Programme (NSFP) in the Ministry of Education (MoE) says his ministry is looking into diversifying the programme’s food basket.
In an interview with Nampa here yesterday, Gerhard Enssle said this was one of the recommendations of a case study on the NSFP conducted by the MoE in partnership with the World Food Programme (WFP) recently.
He said although the maize blend currently given to learners through the programme is nutritious and accepted, the food basket is not diverse enough.
Another recommendation is that the NSFP be extended to all learners from pre-school up to Grade 12.
The programme currently only caters for learners from pre-primary level up to Grade Seven.
