WFP State of School Feeding Worldwide report

One in two schoolchildren, or 388 million children worldwide, ate a nutritious meal in school every day until the COVID-19 pandemic closed classrooms and ended a decade of growth for school meals programmes. This is revealed in a new report by the United Nations World Food Programme released today. WFP is calling for global action to get coverage back to pre-pandemic levels.
