The stories from India’s hinterland on hunger are woeful in themselves. More than 250 million Indians remain food insecure, ingesting less than 2,100 calories every day. As the Planning Commission put it in the Human Development Report, 2012: “If India is not in a state of famine, it is quite clearly in a state of chronic hunger.”
The vast amount of good food which is wasted globally shames us all. It’s also a shocking waste of all the energy and water used in food production, which leads to higher prices and hurts national economies.
In industrialized regions, almost half of the total food squandered, around 300 million tonnes annually, occurs because producers, retailers and consumers discard food that is still fit for consumption
Close to a billion people - one-eighth of the world's population - still live in hunger. Each year 2 million children die through malnutrition. We are eating too much while others starve.)
For the sole breadwinner of the family, arranging one time meal is a “TASK”, and they can aptly describe the value of this food. For them making ends meet is tough and there are many mouths to feed.To feed a hungry stomach is greatest of all deeds.
Taking an initiative for this cause, we organized a food distribution camp at Mamura chowk on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti, because serving the mankind is greatest form of serving the almighty. This is what we believe in.
