The National School Nutrition Programme (NSNP) focuses on provision of nutritious supplementary meals to learners in order to improve temporary hunger, learner's school attendance and punctuality. Food served through this programme is said to be safe for consumption and does not have any hazards that may occur along the flow of food from delivery to serving. However, a growing number of reports around South Africa have noted an increase in the incidence of hospitalization of school children due to contaminated food provided by the NSNP.
