Bhubaneswar, Nov 28 (LocalWire): The state government will provide services and procure goods through Women Self Help Groups (WSHGs) in convergence with Mission Shakti and other departments for effective management of mid-day meals.
WSHGs will be engaged in school noon meals to ease the burden of mid-day meal management by school teachers.
Besides, it will go a long way in empowering rural women, said officials of school and mass education department.
‘The schools covered by Central Kitchen Agencies shall not be entrusted to WSHGs.
Selection of WSHG for mid-day meal management will be done by Collectors,’ a letter issued by the department said.
