Abstract

This report examines the query:

  • What outcomes do school feeding interventions aim to achieve in humanitarian response, and what evidence is there that they have achieved them?

  • What is the evidence of the added value (or not) of school feeding when combined/ compared with other social protection programmes e.g. cash transfers?

K4D helpdesk reports provide summaries of current research, evidence and lessons learned. This report was commissioned by the UK Department for International Development.
