The Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) program provides supplementary food to millions of women and young children in India for approximately 300 days a year at ICDS-run anganwadi centers (AWCs). In the mid-1970s, ICDS began supplying centrally procured raw commodities or processed foods to AWCs.
