To encourage community participation and also to decentralize the supply of SNP in ICDS Projects, the CMSNP is being implemented in 4 ICDS Projects. The Mothers Committee is entrusted with the preparing and supplying the food to the Anganwadi Centers. There are 17 groups consisting of 10 members participating in 4 ICDS Projects covering 669 AWCs. Each group supplies the food to 30 to 50 Anganwadi Centers.

 

A Non-Government organization by name Rastriya Seva Samithi in Thirupathi, Chittoor District is providing service under Integrated Child Development Scheme. Supplementary Nutrition Programme is also being operated by this organization in Thirupathi Rural Project.

 

In two pilot Projects in the Districts of Visakhapatnam and Karimnagar, the Mothers Committees in these Districts are involved in the activities of supply chain distribution, stock maintenance of stock register accounts, and need based management. In Bheemili Project of Visakhapatnam, Mothers Committee is involved, in supplying material from Project Center to all the AWCs of the Project, at Stage-II supply. They procure the provisions from PDS and open market. A need based management strategy has been developed and it gave lot of confidence to the community. They are now aware of supply chain, maintenance of accounts and Registers, transactions through banks, stock monitoring and effective and efficient use of commodities.
