      The acquisition of food from family farming and rural family entrepreneurs for National School Feeding Program is an important strategy for regional development and Food and Nutrition Security, promoting healthy eating and valuing food culture. For its effectiveness, several limitations must be overcome, requiring commitment and engagement of the actors involved. The present study had the objective of making a diagnosis of the purchases of family farming for school feeding in the Territory of Medium Identity Rio das Contas, Bahia. The survey of the transfers of the National Fund was carried out for the Development of Education for school feeding, Public Calls for Family Agriculture, and the number of students attended in the triennium 2015-2017. We observed that most municipalities had made Public Calls, applying resources above the minimum required by the legislation. We concluded that this practice should be maintained and promoted in other municipalities, but some adjustments are necessary, such as meeting clear criteria for the quotation of products and determination of selling prices and adoption of classification criteria determined by legislation. Training for those involved in institutional procurement and an effective follow-up of technical assistance agencies in the territory are possible strategies to use.
