Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites, says a part of his mission this year, is to ensure that the approximately 130,000 students in the early childhood cohort, benefit from two proper meals per day.

Minister Thwaites says he’s also hoping to complete the expansion of the PATH school feeding programme by year end.

The expanded school feeding programme aims to provide lunch on all five weekdays to students, up from three days per week.

Minister Thwaites says the school feeding programme is crucial to the development of the country.
