The Supplementary Feeding Program is the provision of food in addition to the regular meals, which targets children aged two to four years old in all LGU-managed Child Development centers/Supervised Neighborhood Play (SNP) areas and communities. This is part of the DSWD’s contribution to the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) program of the government.
The food supplementation will be in a form of hot meals and alternative meals to be served during snack or mealtime to children a minimum of five (5) and maximum of seven (7) days a week for 120 days.
The feeding program will be managed by parents or caregivers based on a prepared cycle menu using available indigenous food supplies. Children beneficiaries will be weighed at the start of the feeding and monthly thereafter until the completion of 120 days.
