The School Meal Operational Guideline has been developed to guide stakeholders at all levels of implementation, and particularly to provide overall guidance to the relevant officials including Government, NGO and other stakeholders in implementing the programme. It explains the purpose of the School Meal Programme in Bangladesh, provides guidance on how to manage the programme and sets out the minimum standards and best practices. This School Meal Programme Operational Guidelines covers the procurement process from requisition to delivery; local purchase procedures, food quality assurance, storage and handling, food preparation and distribution, monitoring and evaluation and roles and responsibilities of stakeholders. It is therefore expected that this guideline will enhance efficiency and accountability. It is meant to assist with the rollout and continuous improvement of the quality of School Meal Programme implementation at all levels.
As per Government plan, over the period, the Operational Guideline will be reviewed and adjusted based on the learning and progress of the school meal programme.
