Role of cooperatives in food security

  • The cooperatives are also playing an important role in food security in India , especially in the southern and western parts of the country.

  • The cooperative societies set up shops to sell low-priced goods to poor people.

  • For Example , in Delhi, Mother Dairy is making strides in the provision of milk and vegetables to the consumers at a controlled rate decided by the Government of Delhi.

  • Similarly, in Maharashtra, the Academy of Development Science (ADS) has facilitated a network of NGOs for setting up grain banks in different regions.

  •  ADS organizes training and capacity-building programs on food security for NGOs. Grain Banks are now slowly taking shape in different parts of Maharashtra.

  • ADS efforts to set up Grain Banks , to facilitate replication through other NGOs, and influence the Government’s policy on food security are thus paying rich dividends.
