Chennai: Tamilnadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit inaugurated the morning breakfast scheme of Greater Chennai Corporation today at the Tiruvanmiyur government school.
The Corporation has teamed up with NGO Akshaya Patra to provide the breakfast in government schools around the city.
Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar and MP Jayavardhan participated in the event where the Governor personally served the children.
The breakfast scheme would be a huge fillip for poor children who mostly come on an empty stomach to school in the mornings.
The noon-meal scheme of the government takes care of the midday meals of such children and now the breakfast scheme takes care of their morning meals.
