Food Bank

Everyday tons and tons of food goes as waste in restaurants, parties/celebrations, and even from homes where we have a culture of putting in a plastic bag and throwing it in the garbage/wastebin. This way, it is not accessible to any living things: on the other side many humans and animals die of famine and hunger without food.

One of the main reasons to survive in this world is for food, and we decided not to let go of food as a waste rather feed hungry mouths (destitute people, children, even animals) in this city.

For this we collect food from places where it is getting wasted and transfer to the people and animals that are in real need.

Ways to save food from going to waste-bin:

  • 1. First and foremost Food is a precious commodity in India, kindly plan your events in such a manner that very little goes to waste
  • 2. Do not throw food packed in polythene bags or polystyrene cups as animals feed on the entire lot- resulting in health hazard to animals
  • 3. It so happens that on many occasions people are not good at preparing exact quantity of food; on those times kindly maintain certain standards
  • i. Excess food must not have been touched or used.
  • ii. Excess food can be ascertained for how many people or children and then ring CSS to enquire about the nearest Children’s or destitute shelter
  • iii. Remember excess food can be given at certain time of the day like before 10 am or between 2 or 4pm. As most children’s home plan their cooking after 10am and after 4pm
  • iv. In case of food is in excess after 8pm in evening kindly make them into small packs and distribute it to road side people or even people put out near railway stations.
  • Food bank feeds destitute homes, people on streets and, animals in Bluecross of India with the food collected from various places.
