A wonderful initiative started in Gurugram, India is about sharing food for the needy and it works for all of us. Here’s to many more #AnyTimeFood drives.

 

“The community food project, titled Any Time Food (ATF), is the product of collaboration between Kadam, a social responsibility group of Fresco Apartments and Lioness Club Sampoorna, Suncity, Gurgaon.

The refrigerator is left at the main gate of the society and residents are encouraged to leave food packets for the needy. The food service is available 24×7.

Residents are also encouraged to pack and leave leftover or surplus food items from parties, get-togethers and other events so that they could be used to satiate the hunger pangs of the needy.

“This is a small step towards addressing the global problem of hunger and food waste management. Our community fridge will ensure that surplus food from 500 households of Fresco reaches the underprivileged, in a dignified manner, rather than going waste,” Amit Gupta, a member of Kadam, said.”

~~~GUIDELINES~~~

1. Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
2. All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
3. Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news that warms the cockles of our heart. No story is too big or small, as long as it goes beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
4. Place the WE ARE THE WORLD Badge on your sidebar and help us spread the word on social media. Tweets, Facebook shares, G+ shares using the #WATWB hashtag through the month most welcome. More Blogfest signups mean more friends, love and light for all of us.
5. We’ll read and comment on each others’ posts, get to know each other better, and hopefully, make or renew some friendships with everyone who signs on as participants in the coming months.

If you’re tired of negativity and strife on blogs and social media, check out the We Are the World Blogfest! and add a link to your announcement posts. Please SIGN UP for WE ARE THE WORLD BLOGFEST in the linky list below:

    This is such a fantastic initiative. It is so amazing that we have such a project running smoothly closer home. Thanks for sharing, Inderpreet!

  2. Shailaja Vishwanath

    This is so lovely! I think a similar initiative is done in Kerala, if I am not mistaken. I am always appalled at the wastage of food and at the extremes of poverty seen in our country. I do hope this method of food distribution takes off in a big way and more people can benefit from it.

    Such a beautiful gesture and thank you for showcasing it, Indy!

  3. Sulekha

    A wonderful initiative that needs to be replicated all over the country. Thank you for sharing this positive piece of information.

  4. SHALINI BAISIWALA

    Its a fantastic concept and am surprised and happy to see it up and running in my city, in my colony. Though I havent put in anything there yet as we do a lot within our own society here for the needy plus the maid gets all the leftovers/surplus food – the initiative is heartening to see. And yes there is always something in it, whenver I pass it by I peek in!

  5. Beloo Mehra

    This is such a great initiative. I wish other residential societies elsewhere in India also find a way to replicate it for their communities. Thanks for writing about them.

  6. Shilpa Gupte

    This is really a wonderful initiative. This not just helps the needy and the hungry to fill their bellies, but the food doesn’t go waste either.
