A total of N6,643,432,789 billion have been disbursed by the Federal Government since the school feeding programme kicked off late last year.

With 3,325 schools, Kaduna State has the highest number of schools so far covered under the programme, as well as the highest number of schoolchildren (835,508) who have been fed.

It is closely followed by Benue State where 2,220 schools have been covered and 240,827 schoolchildren have been fed.

Zamfara State also recorded a high number, with 1,952 schools covered and 198,788 pupils fed under the programme.

Similarly, Bauchi State recorded impressive figures with 1,904 schools already covered, while 307,013 schoolchildren in the state have so far benefitted from the programme.

Also, a total of 1,850 schools have been covered and 151,438 pupils have been fed in Osun State.In the same vein, 1,479 schools have been covered and 171,835 pupils fed so far in Taraba State; while a total of 1,403 schools have been covered in Oyo State, where 107,983 pupils have been fed.
