In January 2021, Feeding India initiated the ‘Daily Feeding Program’ to support people in need across the country with regular meals. Our approach – we provide regular meals to beneficiaries in underserved communities to reduce their financial burden in the short term. This enables us to empower them to become free from hunger in the long-term.
As of today, Feeding India is now serving 1,00,000 meals a day – a big milestone for our team and the entire country. Over the last seven months, we have worked with 100+ NGO partners and 31 kitchen partners to facilitate over 96 lakh+ meals across 15 cities in India. Each meal costs us approximately ₹10 and contains 280g of nutritious food which is served to beneficiaries in need such as children, women, elderly, daily wagers, differentially-abled, sex workers, and transgenders.
This has only been made possible with the contribution of thousands of people and corporate partners from around the country and beyond. So far, with the help of our partners, we continue to serve people across cities including Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Guwahati, Jaipur, Lucknow, Meerut, Ajmer, Bhagalpur, and Latur.
With over 20 crore people hungry in India, there is a lot more that needs to be done. Going forward, we are increasing the scope of our work geographically, to support cities, including many semi-urban and rural areas, that rank ‘high’ on the India Hunger index. Additionally, our plan is to expand food support for the entire month, up from 22 days a month as of now.
To all those who have supported us (through donations and otherwise), we thank you for helping us accelerate towards our goal of achieving ‘zero hunger’ in India.
