This article presents a case study of a school located in the Quilombola area in the northeast of Brazil. Quilombolas are African descendants and one of the most food and nutritionally insecure groups in Brazil. The main objective is to describe the importance of availability and accessibility of information in protecting rights within the School Feeding Program. Findings reveal that a violation of the right to food was made by the judiciary leading to a lack of food in the school; duty bearers and operators of recourse mechanisms dealt with the violation inadequately. In conclusion, dissemination of information and duty bearers’ related obligations are critical for the enforceability of the right to food.
