    Is their any organisation who can distribute the left over food from parties to slums


    Want to send leftover food from functions to the less privileged? Get a list of organizations that arrange for pick up and distribution of leftover food to the poor.

    As you all know lots of food is being wasted daily at parties and restaurants and on the other hand, lots of people sleep without food daily. Roti bank came up with the idea of distributing the leftover food from parties and restaurants to the needy and to slum areas. Although Roti bank is doing excellent work, sometimes it happens that their members are busy. I just wanted to know whether there is any other NGO or organization who are doing the same work or can help me in the process of distribution of leftover food.

  • We are unfortunate in the sense that hundreds of people of our country go to bed in empty stomach each night and this disappointing situation can be averted if we make a commitment to help them. Needless to say tonnes of food items from the hotels, restaurants and in the marriage parties are wasted which could otherwise be fed to the disadvantaged class of people.
    There are some organisations doing their jobs actively in feeding the starved people and some such organisations doing their selfless jobs are indicated below-
    1) Roti Robin Hood, Delhi - This organisation was by some young professionals collecting the unserved food from restaurants/ hotels so that it could reach to hungry. Within a very short period, it has included 4,000 odd volunteers operational in 30 cities to serve 15,000 meals in a week.
    2) Roti Bank, Bengaluru- This is existing in the area outside the city hospital where 25 volunteers are engaged for the distribution of free foods to the poor and helpless with their active participation.
    3) Dadi Ki Rasoi , Delhi - This venture provides foods and clothes to the disadvantaged people at Rs 5/- and Rs 10/- respectively. The foods are prepared from desi ghee providing authentic taste to the needy.
    4) Dabba Wala, Mumbai- This association came up with a plan to offer foods to the needy and the homeless people of the city. This association collects the leftover foods for the needy and homeless people of the city. With their dedicated efforts, foods are not wasted with the proper distribution of the food stuffs to the needy otherwise, it could have gone in waste.
    5) Mobile Langar, Amritsar- This location was established way back in 2016 by Sri Atul Khatri who takes strenuous pain in the collection of food materials left out by near Gurudwara and these foods find its ways to feed the people suffering from hunger. It is indeed a noble task taken up by Mr Khatri to take care of the disadvantaged people.
