The Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Cynthia Mamle Morrison, has cautioned individuals who troop to her house to collect food to put an end to that act.
Miss Morrison stated that her office is the only place that she can give people food due to the coronavirus which has resulted in a lockdown.
Speaking on Accra FM, she, appealed to Ghanaians to stop coming to her house for food but rather go to her office within the Ministries enclave to be served.

According to her, after she had gone around distributing food to the poor and vulnerable in certain areas, she returned to meet hundreds of individuals at her gate waiting to be given food.
She added that food is not being distributed at her home and that no one should think of coming to her house for food.
“Nobody should come to my house for food. You can all come to the Ministries for the food, not my home."

Meanwhile, the government has revised the procedure used to distribute free meals to Ghanaians amidst the COVID-19 outbreak in Ghana.
According to a directive from the government, food sellers like waakye, koko and kenkey sellers in particular communities are going to be provided with resources to cook and give them out freely to residents in the communities.
The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, in an interview with 3FM, explained that the method was changed in order to adhere to the social distancing practice.
