UP govt decides to involve women SHGs in distribution of nutrition fortified food
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that this will ensure employment of at least one women from every poor rural family. Take home rations (THR) are micro nutrition fortified foods which are given to children under six years of age and pregnant and lactating women under the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS). The collaboration will be launched in 204 blocks of 18 districts in the first phase and then extended to cover all blocks in the state’s 75 districts. The Self Helo Groups involved in the task have formed micro enterprises which are to be registered as a company, licensed by the department of industries.
