      MK Asher Calls for Knesset to Subsidize Food Prices

      MK Yaakov Asher (UTJ) related on Monday to the upcoming legislation of the Food Bill, by which the Knesset will attempt to halt the increase of prices for basic food commodities, "The government must subsidize a basic food package for the average consumer consisting of the most common products, for the benefit of so many families who have reduced their foodstuffs purchases in order to manage price differences of hundreds of shekels between various supermarkets."
