Cultivation is prohibited in Ngorongoro. Therefore, every year NCAA purchases and sells grains at cost price or reduced prices to resident pastoral communities. NCAA has an arrangement with the National Food Reserve Agency (NFRA) to ensure that NCA communities have access to maize grains at affordable prices. NCAA also runs school feeding program to 21 primary schools available in NCA and Jema Primary School at Sale Division. At times, both Embarway and Nainokanoka Secondary Schools are also supplied with food.
