São Paulo – The 2nd UN World Food Programme Regional Seminar on School Feeding with Local Food Purchase – How to integrate systems is set to take place in Addis Ababa from May 30 to June 3. The meeting is organized by the Centre of Excellence against Hunger in Brazil, the Regional Office of the World Food Programme (WFP) in Dakar and the African Union.

The seminar will present around 90 people and will focus on how school feeding programs can be integrated to social protection, family farming, education and healthcare systems.

According to a statement released by the Centre of Excellence, the expectation is for those attending to gain a better understanding about the concepts of school feeding linked to local production, social protection, resiliency, and about the challenges involved in the integration of school feeding, with local food purchases, to broader protection systems.
