The government will meet with the State Food Minister on Thursday to launch a community kitchen for the poor and discuss how to create a “national food grid.”
The conference, chaired by Minister of Food and Public Distribution Piyush Goyal, is being held in response to instructions from the Supreme Court’s government on the preparation of a unified plan for community kitchens and the establishment of a national food grid.
According to official sources, the “One Nation One Ration Card,” Aadhaar-seeding distribution cards, and biometrics of transactions at reasonably priced stores are some of the other issues that will be discussed during the meeting.
Seeing the importance of this issue, food secretary Sudhanshu Pandei discussed the model community kitchen scheme with the Chief Secretary and the State Food Secretary on November 21st.
Many states, such as Orissa and Tamil Nadu, operate community kitchens and offer cooked food at reasonable prices.
The Supreme Court met with the government on November 16 after hearing a petition jointly submitted by activists Anun Dawan, Ishan Dawan, and Kunjana Singh to pray for the establishment of a community kitchen and a national food grid. Open, 3 weeks time.
By the way, earlier that day, the Prime Minister held a review meeting with the national food secretary, Poshan Abhiyan, and asked them to do it in “mission mode.”
