Minya gives out subsidized bread in garbage trucks, citing lack of alternatives

Though Minya Governorate has applied the new smart card system for the distribution of subsidized bread, officials are still relying on garbage trucks to transport the commodity from bakeries to the citizens.
Al-Masry Al-Youm’s photographer in the city of Adwa captured the ongoing practice which annoys the recipients of Egypt’s most sensitive staple food.
An official at Adwa’s municipality told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the trucks are throroughly washed and cleaned before carrying the bread, pointing out that there is no alternative means for transporting it.
