DepEd Order No. 87, s. 2012 entitled Guidelines on the Implementation of the HNC-Funded School-Based Feeding Program (SBFP) shall be used as reference in the implementation of the program.
The school head (SH) is expected to monitor daily the feeding activities and program implementation. The division Technical Working Group (TWG) is expected to monitor compliance of the schools to the guidelines, procurement process, health and nutritional assessment, and the conduct of complementary activities such as deworming, food production, wasted segregation and composting, integration of Essential Health Care Program (EHCP), good grooming and personal hygiene and productivity, life, and values development training.
The regional TWG is expected to monitor the activities of the division offices such as the request for funds, submission of required documents from the schools, timely release of funds to the School Heads, progress of implementation, and liquidation of funds.
It is reiterated that schools shall establish vegetable gardens as a source of ingredients for the program and they shall encourage the families of the beneficiaries to have their own home gardens so that nutritional improvement is maintained at home. The families may ask their barangay officials to provide training and seedlings for their home gardens.
The schools implementing School-Based Feeding Program are required to submit a terminal report to the DepEd Central Office (CO) through the regional and divisional offices.
All regional directors (RDs), schools division/city superintendents (SDSs) and school heads (SHs) are enjoined to extend full administrative support to the management of the program.
