All schools must meet basic requirements to qualify for the project. After JAM’s assessment, the Head of School works together with the PTA to ensure, for example, that there is a kitchen and storeroom; adequate water for food preparation; and people to make the food each day.
Some PTAs have organized the parents to deliver water from a nearby pump. At one school, the parents give their child water to take to school. One school has worked with three local churches to ensure a rota for people to make the food. Some PTAs have raised funds to pay for kitchen staff.
