Mrs Jarteh recounted how the take-home rations were visible in the narratives that the children, parents, and teachers are now telling. It also meant that the over 90,000 students benefiting from the WFP school feeding programme stayed at home. She continued, “When the school feeding food came, some families organized study classes with children sitting far apart. Mr. G. Markson Pewue, the Ministry of Education School Feeding Coordinator in Nimba County, lauded the WFP take-home rations as a unifying force for the family. Throughout 2021, WFP and the Ministry of Education will provide school meals to 90,000 students through cash-based transfers, take-home rations, and on-site school meals.
