The Support for Jordan School Feeding initiative is both an in-kind support and a technical assistance project. It aims to provide improved social protection and poverty alleviation mechanisms for vulnerable populations of Jordan at the national and sub-national levels. The World Food Programme delivers direct food support, in the form of wheat and sugar, for the local production of fortified high-energy biscuits. These are then distributed by the Government of Jordan to primary school children. The World Food Programme also provides technical and strategic support that will enhance the Government of Jordan’s capacity to deliver an efficient school feeding program with sustainable results. Support activities enables Jordan’s national program to reach schoolchildren in the 66 sub-districts with the lowest food consumption and the highest rates of poverty. This ensures a safety net while encouraging children to stay in school.
