The capacity of three of this country’s schools to provide meals for their children has been enhanced, following the presentation of a quantity of equipment handed over to the schools last week.

The Buccament, Diamond and Brighton Government Schools were all recipients of the equipment under the sustainable schools project as part of the zero hunger challenge initiative.

The equipment and appliances are valued at about 45-thousand dollars, and include: new stoves, refrigerators and vital kitchen utensils geared at aiding food preparation. The menu for each school has been revised and recipes are standardized.

Speaking at the handing-over ceremony at the Buccament Government School last week, Chairperson of the Committee for the Sustainable School Feeding Project, Currel Thompson-Fergus said the aim of this program is to strengthen the school feeding program in St. Vincent and the Grenadines
