Every society has a duty and obligation to care for its most vulnerable members.
The Government of Belize and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology take this responsibility seriously. Food and Education are basic, fundamental rights. The National Healthy Start Feeding Programme is a National commitment of PLANBELIZE to ensure that our students in vulnerable and rural communities have an opportunity to get a healthy meal while at school. No child’s physical, emotional or academic development should be limited or compromised because of a lack of Food. School Hunger is a reality for too many of our students. Working together with our many Ministry, Social, Bilateral and Multilateral Partners, Belize is determined to put an end to Hunger in Schools.
This Manual helps us to advance and achieve this goal.
