Abstract

With particular reference to Magwegwe Cluster Primary Schools in Mzilikazi District, the study was conducted to determine the management issues faced by education managers in executing the schools supplementary feeding programs (SSFPs) in Bulawayos Metropolitan Province. In order to gather data for this study, a qualitative methodology utilizing the case study was employed. Open-ended questionnaires, document analysis, observation protocol, and an interview guide were all used. For the study, a sample of twenty Education Managers from Magwegwe Cluster was selected. A few things influencing the implementation of SSFPs are lack of funding and government assistance. Obstacles such as parents non payment of levies and the current state of hyperinflation prevent the SSFPs from being implemented effectively. Strategies to be used for the successful implementation of SSFPs included investing in nutritional gardens, asking the local business community for help, and teaching parents about the value of taking their children to school in order to improve the payment of feeding levies. In order to ensure that there is enough food for the schools, the study suggests that the government subsidize the feeding programs as well, as the SSFPs were implemented a little too quickly.
