The Education Ministry has denied media reports of food shortage in some Senior High Schools (SHS), particularly in the Volta Region.
The Ministry in a statement said such reports are untrue, explaining that “all Senior High Schools in the country have received adequate supply of food items”.
“The Ministry however takes cognisance of recent disruptions within the food supply chain but assures parents and guardians that they have been addressed,” the release stressed.
Some heads of schools had warned of a possible closure of schools following the unavailability of food items to cater for the student population.
“The public is respectfully encouraged to disregard claims of food shortage in our SHSs. The Ministry can confirm that our agency–Buffer Stock– distributed food to all schools in the country. Every school is adequately resourced in terms of food to at least sustain them until the next supply is made. So those media reports of food shortage are unfounded.”
The Ministry is hereby assuring the public of its commitment and willingness in providing quality and timely supply of food to all Senior High Schools.
