Registration for the Federal District Agricultural Production Acquisition Program (Papa-DF) is open until 5 pm on July 22nd. The project allows the local government to buy R$ 5.1 million in food baskets made up of fruits, vegetables and vegetables produced by family farmers in the capital. The products will be destined for needy people, assisted by the Social Development Secretariat (Headquarters).
There are no limits for subscribers. Per family unit, the maximum amount is R$17,019 thousand. As for the supplier organization, the limit is R$854,550 thousand and supply of 27 thousand baskets.
Each applicant will have to submit a Technical Demand Proposal (PTD), in addition to the identification document, CPF and other specifics that can be checked in the notice. The material can be sent in a single PDF file by e-mail [email protected], with a forwarding letter indicating the reference for participation in Public Call No. 003/2021 – Papa-DF. The final result should be released on August 11 this year.
The Green Basket was launched in 2019, and since then, 362,000 families have benefited from the GDF initiative. Food is purchased from 757 family farmers, linked to 20 entities of the Papa-DF. The products are donated to the Food Bank of Centrais de Abastecimento (Ceasa) and Headquarters. The folder is responsible for distributing agricultural production to registered social institutions, which, in turn, transfer these products to families in social and nutritional vulnerability.
Each basket consists of eight items from different groups (tubers, vegetables, fruits). The division seeks to contemplate what family farming has to deliver and which, at the same time, is relevant from a nutritional point of view. Food is inspected before delivery, to ensure the quality required from producers.
