Free food for the most deprived

Free food for the most deprived: Meetings

To give an opportunity for mutual feedback on the Most Deprived Programme and its operation in the different Member States, representatives of the NGOs working directly with the programme are invited to Brussels once a year for the stakeholder meeting. In addition, from time to time, Member State delegates meet in Brussels to discuss specific issues arising from the programme's administration.

Annual Stakeholders meeting - 5 July 2012

Representatives of NGOs working actively with the Most Deprived Programme were invited to Brussels for the annual meeting, during which the 2013 plan was presented and discussed. This was also the occasion to take stock of the important results achieved by the programme over the last 25 years. Organisations shared their experiences in implementing the programme and gave their views on its future. The meeting also focused on opportunities for increasing resources for food aid, for example by recuperating edible food which would otherwise be wasted.

Expert Group meeting – 25 May 2011

Member State delegates were invited to Brussels for a technical workshop to discuss practical aspects of the implementation of the Most Deprived Persons scheme and to exchange best practices. The meeting dealt with issues such as tendering procedures and how the MDP complements national food aid plans. Other topics addressed cooperation between Member States, including intra-community transfers and how bigger Member States can help smaller ones save costs by, for example, running their tendering procedure, as Italy does for Malta.
