Sisodia said the initiative has been launched in order to protect the poor from the impact of the ongoing demonetization exercise that has led to many people dying in bank queues.

The shelters near which these food centres will operate include one each at Geeta Ghat, Yamuna Pushta, Dandi Park, Jama Masjid, Sarai Kale Khan, Nizamuddin Nila Gumbad, Sarai Phoos, Jhandewalan shelter 1, Kotla Mubarakpur and Fatehpuri near Old Delhi railways station.
