Mikalai Charnavus got a warning from the sanitary epidemiological service of Baranavichy for organizing food handouts at a town market.

Mikalai Charnavus, an entrepreneur from Baranavichy, organized food handouts for the poor at a ocal consumer market.

The chief medical officer of Baranavichy center of hygiene and epidemiology Siarhei Pleskatsevich found food delivering at the marker unacceptable. As Radio Racyja reports, the entrepreneur got a warning.

According to Mikalai Charnavus, the chief medical officer of Baranavichy confused the word ‘hand out’ with the word ‘sell’. The businessman believes that the food he delivered is not dangerous, because he made his career from a cook to a canteen director. Dinners were cooked in accordance with all the technological requirements and sanitary norms.

Charnavus plans to have the next charity dinner in a canteen if he receives permission. According to him, if he gets a refusal, he will have to address the chief medical officer of the Baranavichy center of hygiene and epidemiology.
