Our Free Food & Mid-Day Meals Program

Our Free Food & Mid-Day Meals Program

No hungry child concept was originally conceptualised by Mr.V Sridhar, who gave up his Corporate Career in the year 2000 to serve the Social Development Sector. Initially, he started with an idea of helping the Social Organisations in the area of fundraising to ensure that Social Programs do not take a back seat due to paucity of funds. With the help of kind hearted philanthropies, he started the Nutritious Meal Program in Bangalore and realised that this concept should spread across the state then nation then the rest of the world. In doing so, Mr Sridhar also realised that he has to network with as many NGOs as possible to ensure that this Nutritious Meal Program is implemented all across the country.

Pioneering No Hungry Child Free Food Program is focused towards distributing hot, nutritious and fresh food to poor, needy & hungry children across pockets of poverty in India. We have a daily nutritious meal coverage of more than 20,000 hungry & underprivileged children and our daily food distribution regimen is smooth, efficient and dependable - 365 days a year.

Our belief is that the Nutritious Meal Program has an important “socialisation role”. Food should be served in an organized, dignified, equitable, friendly manner. Towards this, our model Nutritious meals and free food program routine strictly observes the following serving rules:

  • All our meals are served in a clean open space which has been swept in advance every day.
  • All children are made to wash their hands with soap before eating.
  • Adequate quantity is served with a second helping if required.
  • Absolutely No wastage of food, with any extra food, if any, re-distributed to the needy.
  • Safe and clean disposal of Paper Plates and Cups.

Strict hygiene is established and maintained at all kitchens being used to prepare these mid-day meal across India including:

  • Mandatory cleaning and scrubbing of all vegetables used for cooking.
  • Mandatory washing of hands before cooking.
  • Mandatory cutting of nails by all food handlers.
  • Purified water to be used for all cooking purposes by boiling, filtration or chlorination.
  • Mandatory Hair covers or caps.

All Nutritious meal routines are strictly monitored for hygiene and quality across the supply and distribution chain. A typical breakfast menu looks like the below for our South Indian Free Food campaign:

Day Breakfast (7.30 – 8.30 A.M.)
Monday Pongal
Tuesday Puliyogere
Wednesday Bisi Bele Bath
Thursday Tomato Bath
Friday Veg Pulav
Saturday Pudina Rice
Sunday Chow Chow Bath

The menu for North India would comprise of Whole Wheat Pancakes (Chapathi / Roti / Phulka) with fresh vegetables (Sabji) and Vegetable Rice / Pulav , followed by simple desserts made up of cream of wheat (Halwa) etc. The meal ingredients are chosen to be nutritious, healthy, easy to prepare, store and transport so that maximum freshness and nutrition can be retained through the Supply Chain.

About Us

No hungry child is the name of the project. This project is being handed over to many NGOs across the country who are registered and in whose name, funds are collected. Receipts are issued by the respective NGOs of the city and location who also provide 80-G to provide Income Tax Exemption upto 50% for Donors who come forward to support this programme. It is established by a group of like-minded philanthropists for the development of the underprivileged society.

The core objectives are to strengthen the under privileged and economically backward rural population by actively implementing various Rural Development programs and creating awareness by setting up Knowledge centers and mobilizing community involvement though pro-active volunteers. This consistent and persistent implementation will bring about unprecedented improvement in the lives of rural citizens of India.

One of No Hungry Child key campaign is aimed towards providing daily nutritious & hygienic Nutritious meals to poor underprivileged children across India. No Hungry Child Charities’ aim for this campaign is "no child should be left hungry in India”. In a country where the rich-poor divide is stark and while millions splurge on good food, we find it unacceptable that even bigger millions of children have to go to bed hungry without any means for food or nutrition.

We are passionate in our dedication to the cause of feeding under-privileged children across India. Towards this, we have ensured a high quality food supply chain and an uncontaminated route by which fresh, hot meals are supplied daily in controlled gatherings. All our operations are quality certified and are open for inspection by our donors at any time. No Hungry Child today has associated with Registered NGOs who have offices at Bangalore Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai/Pune, Delhi/Meerut, Jamshedpur, with our work force spread across the whole of India.

 

Donor's Testimonials

My Best Birthday... Another Year passed by and today I am 50, in search & belief that the little children of this beautiful world who are alone or with single parent struggling for a piece of bread can get the education and a place to stay happily.


I started preaching and speaking that Always smile back at little children who are alone because if you close your eyes or ignore them is to destroy their belief that the World is Good!!

My journey and association with the little adorable children's of No Hungry Child is after understanding the fact is the Greatest Awful Poverty is aloneness...

Showering of intense love has no measurement which I will continue to give them till I drop off....

Thank You to all of You....As I enjoyed my morning with the lovely adorable kids and see them smiling!!

"STOP MIGRATION, STAY-ON WITH RURAL DEVELOPMENT & FOOD SAFETY". This is the theme for the World Food Day celebrated today, established in 1979, streamed & led by UN.
As on today too,800 million people stay starved each day,60% of women stay hungry. Each year globally .5 million children die of hunger and malnutrition, and unfortunately in the International Index for Food Safety, India stands in 100th position. In order to highlight areas needed for action and provide a common focus, projects must revolve around, rural simulation, child nutrition, because only seasoned agriculture – together with support for education and health – will turn this situation around. In spite of the importance of agriculture as the driving force in the economies of many developing countries, this vital sector is frequently starved of investment. In particular, foreign aid to agriculture has shown marked decline over the past 20 years. Almighty has been kind to many of us to be better fed and stay away from hunger. This blessings we must transcend to at least few of our own people, who are less privileged and ensure we contribute in this build of a Humanitarian Needs. My friend and a compassionate human, Amitava Ghosh, on volition, took an initiative of being actively involved in the global mission of "NO HUNGRY CHILD" and contributes yeoman to the society, in whatever ways he can. We too, in similar, be little tilted towards such hungry sprouts of Almighty and be a good stem and a root to support them. Look to roots, come back to be an innovative agriculturist. Spend your walks with people who look to your legs !!!. Passion and Compassion will only make a Nation and not otherwise. Thanks for reading & supporting the cause.
