Education department to continue feeding NSNP beneficiaries



The Limpopo Department of Education has made arrangements for learners who are beneficiaries of the National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP) to
receive food hampers which will cater them while schools remain closed.
This follows the announcement by the Department of Basic Education to delay the reopening of schools by two weeks from January 27 to February 15.
The NSNP resumed on January 27, with schools directed to get service providers to prepare hampers to the value of R273.00 per learner. The hampers should include all specified menu items, delivered in their original form and packaging. Schools that participate in the nutrition pogramme using the decentralised model will directly procure foodstuff for their learners.
According to the department’s spokesperson Tidimalo Chuene, schools will directly communicate with parents and caregivers on when learners can come and collect hampers. She said learners relying on learner transport to reach schools and also benefiting from the nutrition programme will be transported to school to receive their hampers. District Learner Transport Coordinators have been directed to assist schools in the coordination of this process.
Schools were further directed to develop workable mechanisms of distributing hampers within the guidelines of the adopted standard operating procedure for the prevention, containment and management of COVID-19 in schools. These require schools to adequately take into consideration aspects of wearing of masks, social distancing, hand washing and sanitising of frequently
touched surfaces.
