Fund for Feeding the Needy and Hungry

More about the Fundraiser

Food waste is an alarming issue which is resulting in adverse consequences such as huge loss of revenue, resources and also impacts society and environment at a greater scale. Every year the man kind is wasting nearly 1.3 billion tons of edible food which is almost one third of the food produced for human consumption ultimately ending in dustbins and landfills. At the same time, everyday 1 in 9 people (approximately 80 crores) across the globe go hungry and starving for food. 

 

Throwing away the edible food benefits no one and when properly connected to the needy and hungry, it reduces both food waste and hunger. 

 

No Food Waste is such an organization working towards reducing food waste and hunger by recovering untouched edible surplus food from various weddings and functions and feeding the needy. 

 

The initiative was started in Coimbatore in 2014 and now benefiting thousands of needy people in Coimbatore, Chennai, Erode, Salem, Tiruchirappalli, Tiruppur, Dharmapuri, Tadepalligudem and Eluru in Andhra Pradesh and Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala. Also, we are likely to be expanded to 10 more cities by 2018. 

 

We have alleviated the hunger of more than 5.2+ lakh needy people as of March 2018 across 10 cities and saved a revenue loss of about INR 2.7 crores. By our surplus food recovery chapters about 175 tons of edible food is saved from ending in landfills. 

 

Through our food recovery chapters, we are feeding people at an expense of about Re. 1 per individual which involves operational costs such as fuel charges, incentives and vehicle maintenance. We are striving hard daily to reduce this per head cost of expense as much as possible in-order to support more people longing for edible and nutritious food. 

 

We can tackle food waste and hunger better with more hands joined and so even a small contribution of Rs.50 from your would help us in feeding 50 needy people and helps to reduce two major problems together. 

 

Millions of children and people are in need of good nutritious food and they need your whole hearted support !

 

Take part in this noble mission by donating and supporting to No Food Waste!

Let's Feed the Needy and Not Landfills!!
