A walkathon creating awareness on safe food was held from Kowdiar to Tagore Theatre on Thursday which was attended by students, Food Safety Department officials and nutritionists from the Indian Medical Association (IMA).
More programmes will be conducted in association with the schools in the city to ensure the right food is served.
This campaign will be followed in other districts as well,” said Alex K Isaac, assistant commissioner, Food Safety Department.
