Management of the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP) has described as untrue claims that caterers who continue to cook food for beneficiary pupils will not be paid by the government.

The Secretariat says such claims are “misconception and misinformation” aimed at discouraging the caterers under the programme from doing their work.

Some of the Caterers under the programme have been on strike for a week and half now, demanding payment of arrears owed them and an increase in the feeding grant per head.

A statement signed by Head of Public Relations, Siiba Alfa, assured the caterers that they will be paid, adding that the request for an increment in the feeding grants is being worked on.

The Secretariat expressed appreciation to all the caterers who are providing meals to the beneficiary pupils in spite of the delay in the release of their arrears.

It urged all Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies to ensure that all caterers are cooking in their respective jurisdiction as directed by the secretariat.
