The special assistant to the Kaduna State governor on school feeding, Dr Fauziya Buhari Ado, has disclosed that the state government spends N4 billion annually on school feeding.

In a statement on Sunday, Dr Fauziya said no fewer than 25,000 students in 51 boarding schools across the 23 local government areas benefitted from the programme.

She said the programme had significantly boosted school enrollment and benefitted farmers as produce are being sourced from them for the exercise. Fauziya assured that the state government would continue to ensure compliance with the prescribed guidelines, food quality, quantity, hygiene standards and timely service delivery.

The economic impact of the school feeding programme cannot be overlooked. It has not only created opportunities for local food vendors and suppliers but stimulated growth in our local economies,” she said.
