Home-Grown School Feeding Resource Framework

The Home-Grown School Feeding (HGSF) Resource Framework is aimed at fostering the development of a community of practice, to support replication, adaptation and expansion of successful HGSF models. The framework was developed for use by programme practitioners, policy-makers, development partners and governments, as well as civil society and community-based organizations and the private sector.

This resource framework is intended as a guidance tool for the design, implementation and monitoring of home-grown school feeding programmes. It aims to utilize the potential of school feeding in alleviating rural poverty by supporting the development of HGSF. 

The main goals of the HGSF Resource Framework are to:

  • clarify the key concepts, scope and goals of  GCSF programmes;
  • harmonise existing guidance materials; and 
  • provide technical reference for programme planners to design, implement and scale up effective, efficient and sustainable HGSF programmes.
