Discuss any two schemes launched by the government

What has our government done to provide food security to the poor? Discuss any two schemes launched by the government? 

Answer: In the 1970s, three important food intervention progammes were introduced to tackle the shortage of food: 

a. Public Distribution System (PDS): This system was made to ensure smooth supply of subsidized food items to the poor. 

b. Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS): These services were introduced to provide proper nutrition to poor children. 

c. Food for Work (FFW): This programme was introduced to help the poor to earn food in lieu of some work.
