KAVREPALANCHOWK: Local levels in Kavrepalanchowk have initiated a ‘food bank’ to render relief to the indigent and poor people finding hard to manage food during the lockdown.

Two local governments have established the food bank considering the increased risk of food crisis in the wake of extension of lockdown.

Mayor of Namobudhha Municipality Tanka Prasad Timilsina informed that food distribution to the families is going on through the bank.

He said that the workers of non-organized sector have been given the special priority in the distribution.

According to him, 580 families were given the foodstuffs in the first phase of distribution.

Each relief package includes two kilos of pulse, a sack of rice, two liters of edible oil and two kilos of iodized salt.

Likewise, discussions are underway to launch the second phase of distribution.

Similarly, food assistance received from several donors and organizations have not been included in the distribution.

The food bank has a stock of 1,200 kilos of pulse, 19,000 kilos of rice; 1,300 kilos of edible and 1,500 kilos of salt.

The Panauti Municipality had a month ago established a food bank. It had distributed foods to 130 families in the first phase.
