The National Homegrown School Feeding scheme of primary school pupils has finally commenced in Anambra State. The scheme debuted successfully in the state on Thursday as primary school students were served delicious 'okpa'.
 It is believed the scheme will feed an estimated 76, 690 pupils in 1050 schools in the state. The feeding programme will cater for all the pupils from primary 1 to 3 in the states of the federation. Speaking on the development, the Special Assistant on Homegrown School Feeding Programme in the Office of the Vice President, Mr. Dotun Adebayo said primary school pupils in Anambra were excited as the feeding started in their schools. Adebayo who was in Awka to supervise the effort, led a team of Federal and State officials to some of the schools on day one of the programme implementation.
 Adebayo said they witnessed the feeding in three schools in Awka: Community Primary School, Awka South; Central School Ameobi, and Central School in Nibo.
“The pupils were excited and enjoyed the meals. The cooks in those three schools, among the total 774 already recruited and trained for the feeding programme, served ‘okpa’ a.k.a moin-moin garnished with vegetables to the delight of the pupils who took the meals during their break time about noonday.” he said.
