School meals are increasingly recognised as a vital investment in human capital with a significant positive impact on both the national and local economy. This is why more and more countries are interested in organising school feeding. It is seen as playing an important role in national development, while also providing a crucial means to support and give protection to children during times of crises.

With its long history, the school feeding programme has become an integral and important part of the Finnish education success story. In order to tell this story globally, Finnish National Agency for Education and Ministry for Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), has for the first time collected the lessons learnt into a comprehensive document that follows the school feeding assessment outline developed by WFP.
