More than 87,000 citizens to receive food coupons

For five years, the Government of Mongolia has implemented a food coupon program for citizens with income below the nation’s subsistence level. The Ministry of Population Development and Social Protection conducted a study to determine the subsistence level this year, and will grant 87,778 members of 15,137 families food coupons. With the monthly coupons, 10,000 MNT for adults and 5,000 MNT for children, recipients can buy food from 668 shops in Ulaanbaatar. The coupons can be used to buy meat, milk, flour, eggs, vegetables, rice and fruit.
