What are the three important Food Intervention Programmes?
- Public Distribution System (PDS) gives provision of food grains for the poor at subsidised cost. It was existing earlier also but strengthened thereafter.
- Integrated Child Development Science (ICDS). It was introduced in 1975 on an experimental basis.
- Food For Work (FFW) was introduced in 1977-78. Over the years, several new programmes have been launched and some have been restructured with the growing experience of administering of the programme.
