Legal texts

The Council Regulation which provides the legal basis for the Most Deprived food distribution scheme is given below, together with the Commission implementing Regulation and the distribution plan for 2008.

For your convenience consolidated texts are made available, which - while having no legal value - integrate the basic act with its subsequent amendments and/or corrections in a single text.


  • Council Regulation (EEC) No 3730/87 of 10 December 1987 laying down the general rules for the supply of food from intervention stocks to designated organizations for distribution to the most deprived persons in the Community

    Basic act: bgcsdadeetelenesfritlvlthumtnlplptroskslfisv

    Consolidated text: bgcsdadeetelenesfritlvlthumtnlplptroskslfisv

  • Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3149/92 of 29 October 1992 laying down detailed rules for the supply of food from intervention stocks for the benefit of the most deprived persons in the Community

    Basic act: bgcsdadeetelenesfritlvlthumtnlplptroskslfisv

    Consolidated text: bgcsdadeetelenesfritlvlthumtnlplptroskslfisv


Each year before the 30 September the Commission adopts an annual plan for the distribution of products available in intervention stocks between the Member States that want to participate in the programme. The allocation is carried out in different steps, through an iterative process.

When all the money has been allocated, each Member State has received a specific ceiling which must not be exceeded in their national implementation. These specific ceilings are approved in the annual plan Regulations.

Each Member State organises the implementation of the programme on its own territory. The implementation may involve one or several charitable organisations. The Member State shares the available products between the organisations in the way it thinks appropriate to meet the needs of the final beneficiaries – the most deprived members of society.
