This document provides detailed guidance on the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) community‐based supplementary feeding program, Tom Brown, for nutrition actors within or outside of CRS. Its primary purpose is to provide practical information on Tom Brown programming so that the model of implementation can be replicated or adapted to help children with moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) from deteriorating to severe acute malnutrition (SAM). This program is implemented in an emergency context in northeast Nigeria; however, nutrition actors could adapt it in non‐emergency settings.
