The National Conference of Principals of Colleges of Education Ghana (PRINCOF) has directed teacher trainees to start to fund their own feeding from May 8.
This is as a result of the inability of Colleges of Education to make payments for food items supplied to them.
The food suppliers who had continued delivering supplies to the Colleges of Education for months without payment have finally withdrawn their services till they receive the amounts owed them.

Teacher Trainees To Feed Themselves Starting May 8
PRINCOF in a letter to the Education Minister stated that Most Colleges now have food items that can last only one week if students are to be provided with three (3) meals a day and as such PRINCOF suggests that:
- Trainee teachers will be provided with two meals, breakfast and supper only for one week, from April 23 to April 30, 2022.
- Trainee teachers from May 1 to May 8, 2022 shall be given lunch only.
- After May 8, trainee teachers would be asked to provide their own meals until their feeding allowances have been paid,”
- Food vendors are being encouraged to increase the quantity of daily meals they cook for sale to students.
