School food programmes are a multisectoral game changer that improve children’s educational outcomes, health and nutrition and gender equity. More broadly, they support the whole community by providing an important safety net, and by strengthening food systems and economies (WFP, 2024). As a proud partner of the School Meals Coalition GAIN is dedicated to supporting governments in enhancing and establishing sustainable national school meal programs and striving for every child to have the opportunity to receive a healthy, nutritious meal in school by 2030. 

School food programmes are increasingly becoming a feature of GAIN’s work with activities taking place in nearly every GAIN country and cutting across its programmes. Activities go beyond only school meals and range from supporting the development of school feeding guidelines, the integration of fortified and biofortified foods into school meals, supporting value change development in home-grown school feeding programmes, research on public food procurement and nutrition and food education. 

Much of this work has grown organically with each GAIN country and/or GAIN programme developing their own context-specific approached to school food programmes. As this work is expanding, GAIN now seeks to consolidate, improve coordination and learnings across its school food activities to ultimately develop a framework for a successful evidence-based school food programme.

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is issuing this Request for Proposal (RFP) and will be the administrative lead organisation for this RFP. This RFP complements a second RFP issued by GAIN - ‘School Food and Nutrition Literature Review’.
