Poor quality midday meals for poor students…

Poor quality midday meals for poor students…
The "midday meal" project feeds about 120 million children every day. The scheme is the largest such program in the world. It has been widely lauded as one of the most successful welfare measures in India, home to a quarter of the world's hungry, because it also boosts school enrolments and helps children to continue studies. For millions of poor families, the lunch is the only full meal their children eat in a day. Reports have highlighted the continuing failings of the program. Problems include grain kept in decrepit conditions in federal warehouses, and then often stored and cooked in poorly-equipped schools by staff with little or no training. The problem is not lack of rules but poor implementation and a lack of accountability. Part of the problem is poor infrastructure. Thousands of schools do not even have their own buildings and are run from community centers with no storage facilities. Many schools are no bigger than a single room.
