Charity Food & Hunger
There are villages on the outskirts of the capital of India, where food is not a luxury; a chapatti is shared by 4 kids and kheer is left only to imagination. Kids rarely go to the only government school, mostly because their parents need them for household errands. Dreams are turned to dust, since only a few people make it out of here. Words like education, electricity, sanitation, hygiene and even money make no sense when one simply does not have access to food.
Feeding India has a dream, a dream to feed these people. The ‘Magic Truck’ is the only way to realize this dream. By collecting excess food (that is usually discarded), from corporate offices and restaurants the ‘Magic Truck’ will be able to donate nutritious meals to 1,000 people every day twice.
The meal will comprise of 1 dal, 1 vegetable, chappatis, rice, and some dessert. This meal will not just enable these people to start earning a livelihood for themselves, but will also give them a much needed realization that people in this world actually do care. Feeding India hunger heroes have also taken up the initiative to monitor their nutrition levels regularly.
‘Feeding India’ is a not-for-profit social enterprise which aims to connect two major social problems today: Hunger and Food waste as a solution for each other. We tackle these by channelizing excess food from individuals, weddings, restaurants, corporate offices to the people who really need it and have no means or access food. Feeding India currently collects and donates all excess food by the help of our volunteers aka Hunger Heroes. With the ‘Magic Truck’ being operational, our hunger heroes will also be able to serve 10 times the number smiles to the underprivileged.
