First, sign the Declaration.

The road back from the damage caused by COVID-19 will be long, and uneven. One of the most important contributions to recovery governments and partners can make, is re-establishing school meals programmes. These programs work. They change lives, for children, and communities. Simply put, restoring and re-establishing school meals programmes is among the most important contributions the world can make to secure the future for our children and our societies.

Membership in the School Meals Coalition will be open to stakeholders willing to align themselves with the goals and objectives of the Coalition.

Learn more about how to sign our “Declaration of Commitment” or “Declaration of Support” and join us in building the School Meals Coalition.

The School Meals Coalition will only be effective if its goals and objectives are championed at national and subnational levels, with leadership by governments and key stakeholders from all sectors.

Members of the Coalition can join or contribute to any of these initiatives or establish new ones that are in line with the Coalition's objectives.

The Coalition initiatives are not designed to be new structures, but as a means for addressing gaps and ensuring better coordination around important areas to drive progress quickly.

This is being developed by the World Food Programme (WFP) and includes a global school meals database, in partnership with Dubai Cares, the Research Consortium for School Health and Nutrition and regional groups like the African Union and the African Union Development Agency (AUDA/NEPAD). It will be used to track and monitor Coalition accomplishments.
