Brazil implements large-scale programme to provide food to poor

Authorities have also optimised the composition of the basic food basket


Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva ordered to change the composition of the basic food basket and to implement the "Solidarity Kitchen" programme, which will provide free meals to people living on the streets and in difficult situations. The relevant decrees were signed at a plenary meeting of the National Council for Food and Nutritional Security (Consea).

According to the government, the new composition of the basic food basket is in line with the recommendations and principles of the Ministry of Health's guidelines. It now includes more natural and minimally heat-treated foods.

The president emphasised that fighting hunger is a priority for the country's leadership. This is reported by Toda Palavra, a partner of TV BRICS.

"We must realise that the problem is not a lack of food, but a lack of resources that allow people to have access to it," Lula da Silva said.

The Solidarity Kitchen programme is coordinated by Brazil's Ministry of Social Development and Fight Against Hunger (MDS) and has been in operation since July 2023. The office has already mapped 2,770 kitchens across the country, which work through collaboration between different entities related to family farming, food procurement and others.
