Cambodia, USDA McGovern Dole WFP School Feeding: mid-term evaluation

The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) McGovern-Dole School Feeding Programe supports World Food Programme (WFP) overall school meals programme (SMP) and also aims to support the provision of quality education; promote good nutrition practices; and enable the school feeding programme’s transition to national funding, management, and overall ownership. This report presents the findings from the midterm evaluation of the USDA McGovern-Dole for WFP School Feeding activities in Cambodia, covering the period 01 November 2019 to 30 October 2023. This work was conducted concurrently with an evaluation of the USDA-supported Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement (LRP) programme, which will produce a complementary report. This report aims to provide an independent assessment of the programme so far to enable WFP Cambodia, the Royal Government of Cambodia, and cooperating partners, to feed its results and learning into the remainder of this programme and future programmes - in particular, the transition to the Government-led and managed National Home-Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP).
