Pre-school feeding schemes in primary schools in South Africa and Ghana have been a qualified success. This paper considers whether the infrastructure and associated resources; staff, equipment etc., that are used to deliver the projects are adequate for the task. Two case studies are presented that describe the current status and working of national schemes in Ghana and South Africa. The concluding analysis considers the achievement of these schemes and, more importantly, the potential to develop them to enhance quality and equity of education.
