dc.description.abstract Guyana s Hinterland Community-Based School Feeding Program (SFP) began in 2007 with the objective of building more community participation in schools and improving children s human development outcomes, such as student enrollment and attendance, nutritional status and learning outcomes. In addition, the program supports improvement of schools organization of primary level in Regions 1, 7, 8 and 9. In order to participate in the program, schools and their associated communities are required to submit school feeding proposals, undergo training in basic financial bookkeeping, food hygiene and nutritious meal preparation, using locally produced foods whenever possible. Communities must also ensure school kitchens meet the requirements and guidelines of the Ministry of Health, ensuring an adequate safe-water supply. To evaluate the program, the Government of Guyana and the World Bank collected survey data from schools, students, teachers and parents in three rounds 2007, 2008 and 2009 in Regions 1 and 7. This report shows the findings and impacts of SFP using all survey rounds. Regions 1 and 7 are characterized by high poverty levels and agricultural labor intensity. Both factors highlight the potential of organizing SFP around local producers, so that a regular supply of low-cost food can be guaranteed to the local schools and children living in precarious conditions. Seventeen of the sixty-four schools participating in the impact evaluation are in Region 7, and the rest are in Region 1. Randomization for the selection of comparison groups was not achieved, due to the participation rules. However, sample selection correction methods were used to correct for observable and unobservable biases. en
