Distribution of Ration And Mask On COVID Pandemic
Astha Gram Seva Food for the Astha Gram Seva a non-profit organisation based in Bihar. Our team’s mission is simple – no one should have to sleep hungry. Over the last 20 years, we have delivered more than 10,000+ meals to those in need, in partnership with authorities across the country with over 20+ feeding programs.
In the midst of the on-going pandemic, social distancing is a luxury that India’s informal workforce of 450 million cannot afford. With the government lockdown order and inadequate state provisions for food distribution, several families are sleeping hungry — in their homes, stranded at railway stations or state borders.
To support our community in Bihar during lockdown, we have increased capacity at the Astha Gram Seva ’ Kitchen by 6x and delivered 6,000+ nutritious cooked meals over the last 90 days. Each nutritious meal of approximately 450 calories, costs only INR 15 /-. We have in place a team of well-trained inhouse cooks who follow standard operating procedures to maintain hygiene and quality parameters. We have also started distributing nutritional and energy packed foods such as biscuits, bread and rusk. We are working with government authorities to make this possible. Daily, they identify localities where people are hungry and help us distribute the food there.
