Dry Food Grains Will Be Given To Students In Goa

The approval to supply dry food grains to students from Class I to VIII for the remaining 165 days was given by the state cabinet.  This is a part of the mid-day meal scheme.  A 100 days’ worth of grains has already been given to the children. In total, they get mid-day meals for 220 days.

To help with the difficulties Covid-19 brought, the state government will give a ration for an extra 45 days. The cost of supplying this food for 165 days along with transportation charges is more than Rs. 17 lakh. Self-help groups and mahila mandals will help give the dry food to school premises. Parents have to go to the schools to take ration.

This mid-day meal scheme is under the National Programme of Nutritional Support to Primary Education of the government of India.
