What We Do.
Food And Nutrition Security
MTRDS is promoting food and nutrition security by establishing co-operative stores by which the clusters committees are assured to provide food and nutrition to the members. The women’s’ cooperatives were encouraged to undertake kitchen gardens where they can produce vegetables, fruits etc for healthy food. There are a few clusters who are developing nurseries where they grow leaf vegetables. Leaf vegetables contain more nutrients and increase nutrition intake in the human body. MTRDS distributes medicinal plants to the members to grow in their kitchen gardens. The medicinal plants can then be used when there is a need.
In order to ensure food security throughout the year they buy food grain when it is available at the lowest price. the grain is stored in the community storage facilities and then supplied to the members as needed. They opened a supermarket for members so that they may buy quality goods at affordable price at door steps. In this way MTRDS assures food and nutrition security in our target areas.
