Thank you for your donation! People like you are creating a new generation of givers
Every donation will help AAF rescue and redistribute food to 50,000 families for two months.
This fundraiser has been extended so that Akshaya Aahara Foundation have some more time to get closer to their target.
82% of hungry people are living in countries with food surpluses, not food shortages, which shows the problem is not lack of food but that of distribution. One solution to this global issue lies in ensuring that excess food reaches the hungry, not the overflowing landfills which rank third in terms of greenhouse gas emissions in India. AAF’s effort to redistribute cooked food to more than two lakh families annually should be lauded.THE PLAN
AAF’s small team includes two vans, two drivers and two helpers who attend to around 10 to 20 food calls every day. They pick up the surplus food from the location, check the quality, then travel across Mysuru to distribute it to the people who need it. Collection costs including transportation totals around ₹2,000 per day. The funds raised will be used to meet the daily expenses for two months and will benefit 50,000 families.
