Abstract: For a number of years primary schools in Central Division of Moyale District, Kenya have not been performing very well. The researcher wanted to investigate if school feeding programmes will improve pupil's academic performance. In the study, the researcher employed descriptive design. Therefore simple survey or poll for the purpose of describing attitudes, beliefs and behaviours of the study population were used. Questionnaires were used in the collection of data. The raw data was then analyzed, presented in percentages and frequency distribution tables. The findings from the study revealed that there are few feeding programmed in the schools. It also showed that school feeding programmes significantly affected pupil's academic performance. From the findings, it implies that there is a great need for the SMCS to be sensitized and the government to add more weight in the school feeding programmes by funding and seeking donors. Suggestions for further research were to investigate the impact of absenteeism on pupils' academic performance.
