11

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, announced that Federal Government, in partnership with states, is set to start feeding schoolchildren in their homes.

Speaking at the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja, Sadiya Farouq said the government had overhauled the school feeding programme in a way to ensure that schoolchildren were fed at home despite the lockdown.

She noted that her ministry in collaboration with state governors worked out modalities for the implementation of home feeding programme, adding that the initiative was set to commence.

The minister had explained that the food would be distributed door-to-door, as vouchers would be allocated at specific collection times to avoid overcrowding.
