Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan on Thursday apprised the Senate that the network of “Koi Bhooka Na Soye” would be extended to other cities, including Dera Ghazi Khan, Bahawalpur, Quetta and Karachi.
In response to questions about the network of kitchen trucks, the minister said that dinner and lunch were being provided to the needy individuals through a mobile unit in urban and rural areas of Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Lahore, and Peshawar on different routes.
He said the government was only facilitating the programme while the food was being provided by Saylani Welfare Trust and other philanthropists.
“Now, the PBM is intending to expand itself to at least two prioritized cities of each province across the country to reduce hunger through provision of two-time hygienic packed food to the needy individuals,” he said.
He informed the senate that fresh-cooked nutritious and healthy meal was provided to beneficiaries by mobile units on different routes.
