ANIA supports the Alimentation and Insertion Programme (PAI) since its launch in 2003. The programme is a public-private partnership commitment with the National Food Programme (PNA), the ministry of health, food aid associations and it is validated by the National Health and Nutrition Programme (PNNS).
The programme, which is renewed every year, has the dual objective of improving the health and nutritional status in malnourished populations while also addressing social inequalities.
The PAI is based on the development and distribution of educational and practical tools:
- An annual schedule with balanced recipes at low prices, nutrition tips and fun games to teach children to eat better. The calendars are delivered by volunteers and social workers to aid recipients.
- Posters, providing nutritional messages and suitable for people with reading difficulties, which are intended to be placed in local associations.
In 2015, more than 3 million calendars and nearly 450,000 posters were distributed to food aid associations.
