THE World Food Programme (WFP) on Wednesday temporarily suspended food aid to Karamoja schools due to lack of funds.
The head of the Moroto zonal office, Sankoh Bai Mankay, advised the schools to prepare one meal a day for the learners.
Primary schools, teachers colleges, secondary schools and tertiary institutions have all been benefitting from the aid.
Petero Lochugae, a parent at Lotome Primary school, said suspending the programme would mean no education.
â€œWith Karimojong children, if they do not see smoke at school in the morning that means no class,â€ he said.
The chairperson of Karamoja secondary school head teachersâ€™ association, Peter Luzige, advised parents to contribute food and ensure continuity of education.
