Oxfam GB implemented the Vulnerable Group Feeding (VGF) Programme in Shurugwi, Chirumanzi and Kwekwe districts of Zimbabwe from September 2007 to April 2008. The VGF Programme responded to harvest failure within the context of a declining macroeconomic environment. It targeted vulnerable and food insecure households by providing food commodities to meet basic nutritional needs. This final evaluation focuses on the effectiveness of outputs and resource management, progress made towards achieving objectives, and areas of future improvement. It also assesses the current food situation in the selected sites. The aim is to learn lessons and make recommendations for future programme planning and design.
