Evelyne Mwendwa & Justus Gori

Abstract: To participate effectively in the economic development of the country, hunger ought to be controlled. This can be done if feeding programme are introduced in schools. School Feeding Programme (SFP) was initiated in Kenya in 1979 with provision of milk packets to the pupils and it was fully implemented in 1980 by the government of Kenya with collaboration with World Food Programme (WFP), though it has not led to desired outcome in many parts of the country. The objective of this study was to assess the relationship between SFPs and the pupils’ retention in public primary schools in Kitui County. The study intended to assess retention as one of the indicators of effectiveness in learning. The study used Classical Liberal Theory of equal opportunity and Maslow’s theory of Human motivation. The researcher used survey research design. The target population was 374 primary schools under feeding programme in Kitui County. The sample size was 112 schools which are 30% of the target population. These schools were sampled randomly.
