Mobile app based reporting introduced to monitor CM's extended breakfast programme in schools

Mobile app based reporting introduced to monitor CM's extended breakfast programme in schools

A dedicated mobile app is in place to capture every step of the breakfast preparation process under the Chief Minister's expanded breakfast programme.

From the early morning hours of 6:00 a.m., when the breakfast preparation begins, to its completion by 7:45 a.m., visual evidence is required to be uploaded. At precisely 8:00 a.m., the serving of breakfast is documented through photographs and added to the app. The program, which provides nutritious breakfast to 1,01,318 students across 1,418 primary schools in Salem district, is also under the vigilant eye of a 67-member committee of district-level officials.

Vital to the program's integrity is the practice of having the school principal and a management representative taste the food before it reaches the students. This quality and taste check ensures that only food meeting the desired standards is served. Documentation of these activities is meticulously kept both within the mobile app and in the school's register.

To uphold the efficacy of the initiative, a daily surprise inspection of schools is undertaken by the committee of district-level officers. Weekly review meetings are held for district-level officers. This forum assesses the implementation of the breakfast program and invites insights from officers, thereby fostering continuous improvement.

A moment of surprise and recognition awaited Mrs. Sonia, the cook responsible for timely, tasteful, and high-quality breakfast preparations at the school as the District Collector Mr. S. Karmegam carried out an unannounced visit to Yercaud Mundagambadi Panchayat Union Elementary Schools on Wednessday, as part of the ongoing scrutiny of activities under the Chief Minister's Breakfast Program. The collector appreciated Sonia's conscientious service by adorning her with a shawl.

Speaking on the occasion, the District Collector underscored the need for consistent vigilance. He urged concerned officials to conduct daily inspections across all schools to ensure that the program's objectives are met without compromise.
