O'MEAL Director Charges Food Vendors On Quality Food
The State Programme Officer of Osun School Feeding and Health Programme (O’MEAL), Mrs Olubunmi Ayoola has charged the food vendors in the Government Elementary Schools across the State to serve pupils with quality and nutritious food in line with government directives.
Mrs Ayoola made this charge while addressing the food vendors at a workshop in Osogbo and Ilesa.
She said Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’s administration has invested so much in the feeding of pupils in public elementary schools and this has manifested in the increase in the enrolment of pupils in the schools.
Mrs Ayoola explained that, the inclusion of Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato (OFSP) in the menu is to add more value and increase more vitamin A intake in pupils in public schools.
She therefore advised the food vendors to always serve fruits as provided in the menu table of the pupils.
Highlight of the activities was the demonstration of cooking of Orange Fleshed Sweet Potatoes .
