Caterers of the School Feeding Programme have threatened to lay down their tools if government fails to settle arrears due them by the end of May.

The caterers, numbering about 5,432, Monday picketed at the premises of the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection demanding their eight-month outstanding payments.
Chairperson of the School Feeding Caterers Association, Maame Yaa Duodua Appiagyei, told Accra-based Neat FM that they have not received any payments for the foods they prepare for basic school children since June 2016.

They have therefore given the government up to the end of May to pay their arrears or embark on strike.

“They have been owing us from June 2016 till date. We have been able to cook since the beginning of this term. Now we have exhausted every avenue [and] we don’t have any place to go for help. Because we are using the mobile money system, we cannot go to the banks for loans. Things are very difficult for us and we don’t know where to go.”
