Caterers of school feeding demand Ghs3.00 feeding grant; Ghs1.00 per day is inadequate

Some aggrieved caterers working under the Ghana School Feeding Programme have threatened to stop cooking for students if the government fails to increase the feeding grant to three cedis per head.

The caterers say the GHS1.00 allocated to children under the programme is woefully inadequate and unfair.

The women, who are part of a group calling itself ‘Touch one Touch all’ Caterers Association, say they’re disappointed in the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Adwoa Safo, for failing to address their concerns.

One of the aggrieved caterers who spoke to Citi News on condition of anonymity said they have vowed not to cook until they hear from the government.

“We do not even know where Adwoa Safo is. She does not do anything about school feeding. You call for meetings and she will not come. We worked since January, and we were paid just on the 25th of this month. We want the school feeding grant increased to 3 cedis. If not, we are not going anywhere to cook.”

The government currently provides GHS1 per day for a plate of food for a child.

The amount is considered inadequate to provide an adequate and healthy diet for child development.
