Elijah Amoo Addo, Founder of Food for All Ghana Program solicited for stakeholder’s support in addressing food wastage and hunger in Ghana by donating surplus food products to the recovery program.
“It is very serious when children are out of school because of hunger and within our food supply chain we are wasting 30% of food in Ghana.

Businesses have significant and unique abilities to combat the root causes of hunger and food wastage in Ghana. Kids under the school feeding program are fed on 80 pesewa per day and the school feeding program must be extended to include children in the junior high school. Food for All Ghana together with stakeholder partnership could go a long way to support the Ghana school feeding program.”

Receiving the items, Mrs Ivy Agyei-Twum, the circuit supervisor of Ghana Education Service for Teshie expressed gratitude to Food for All Ghana for donating towards the feeding of kids under the program.

”Teshie Cluster of schools is one of the few schools with a school feeding program kitchen and very delighted that inspite of the challenges, we have been providing one meal per day for over 900 children from primary 1 to 6 since 2009.This meals have improved enrollment within the school and vulnerable parents are encouraged to send their kids to the school because of the meals provided.”

Mr. Micheal K. Dua, the caterer in charge of cooking for children under the school feeding program was very happy; Food for All Ghana program came to the rescue of the school feeding program within the community.”We entreat you to frequently support us in improving the meals given to the children under the program. It’s quite challenging feeding this number of children daily and will be glad if the Food for All Ghana program can frequently support us in implementing the program.

For the first time under the school feeding program, the children enjoy their meals with a drink.We are very grateful to Food for All Ghana.
