Current Operations
Support for the National School Feeding Programme

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 1 (see below).

Despite high overall levels of food security, Jordan has pockets of food insecurity where the population is seriously affected by the protracted economic crisis and events in neighbouring Syrian Arab Republic. Government budget constraints on  social safety-net expenditures  –caused by the economic crisis – have led to a reduction of almost 80 percent in the national school feeding programme.
