Program Brief: USDA McGovern-Dole FFE III Program in Tanzania

Since 2010, Project Concern International (PCI), a Global Communities Partner, has implemented integrated school feeding programs in Tanzania with funding from USDA’s McGovern-Dole International Food for Education (FFE) and Child Nutrition (McGovernDole) program. In 2016, PCI began the third phase of its McGovern-Dole project, called FFE III, which continues to be implemented with the Government of Tanzania’s Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST), Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elders and Children (MoHCDGEC), President’s Office, Regional and Local Government (PORALG), and other Government of Tanzania (GoT) ministries at all levels. Over the life of the project, FFE III will provide 4,560 metric tons (MT) of USDAdonated commodities – rice, beans, vegetable oil – for daily school meals, benefitting 265,938 preschool and primary school students from 231 schools within three districts in the Mara Region.
