Mid-Day meal fails to meet demands of 600 schools

Around 600 schools of the district are suffering from insufficient provision of mid-day meals, particularly in tribal areas where kids return home empty-stomach.

Although the Parishad has issued the required demand of food, it will take a week’s time for the food to reach to all the schools. There are around 3500 schools with over 3.50 Lac students that receive mid-day meals.

Narrowing down to 300 schools of areas such as Jhadol, Rishabhdeo, Salumber and Kherwada, there has been no supply of wheat and rice from the Parishad due to which the number of class attendees has drastically reduced.

According to the scheme, wheat-rice is issued to each school quarterly in a year through ration contractors. The block education officers have received the required demand but due to 4-days holidays in the week, the ration will be sent over after a week.
