These will help save time and energy significantly. The students at mid-day meal, will get all details on screen which they have to follow.
Free meals are provided in schools as part of ’Mid-Day Meal’ programme to encourage poor parents to send their children to school. But the major problem faced is poor management. To overcome this a food vending machine has been designed. Dispensing machine distributes food and milk based on finger print scanner.
