“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one” – Mother Teresa
What is #IamFeedingIndia?
This is a five-day-long campaign – to encourage empowered citizens, conscious corporates and responsible food business operators to come together and join us in tackling the challenge of hunger, undernourishment and food wastage.
As a part of this campaign, 250+ restaurants across 80 cities in India, are partnering with Feeding India and have pledged to donate freshly cooked meals and grains at specifically allocated hunger spots.
Read below to know more about how you can join the movement and contribute in your own way.
Who can participate?
Anyone and everyone who shares our vision of reducing wastage across the world should and must participate in this campaign. On World Food Day, we look forward to people coming together and donating meals to those in need – marking their support to the campaign against global hunger.

Why should you care?
As of September 2019, one-third of the food manufactured and packaged for human consumption is lost or wasted (according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). The most grievous outcome of this wastage is that 10% of our population is chronically undernourished.
Isn’t that heart-breaking?
Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems faced by mankind today is food wastage and as thinking citizens, we should be able to tackle it in our own ways and with the means that we have available, at any given point in time.
Over the last 5 years, Feeding India has been recovering surplus food from large and small sources and has utilised this to serve over 31 million (3.1 cr) meals to those in need. To continue our initiative towards generating awareness for this cause, we are driving the #IamFeedingIndia campaign.
And if you believe in this cause and want to be involved, become a Hunger Hero.
We believe that the powerful act of participation and enabling people around us with the right tools and opportunities is important. Every act of bridging the gap between those who might have too much and those who have too little can solve hunger locally. Become a Hunger Hero here.
