This summary presents the findings and implications from the three country studies jointly undertaken by the World Bank, IFPRI and the World Food Programme (WFP) on School Feeding Programmes in Burkina Faso, Uganda, and Lao PDR (Laos) between 2005 and 2008. The cases of Burkina Faso and Laos provide significant evidence on the positive impacts of school feeding on the policy-claimed objectives of education, nutrition and gender. The impact evaluation in Laos shows how empirical research can help to identify the major challenges at policy level and to improve the design and implementation of school feeding programmes in the field.
