Kolkata: A food ATM has come to Kolkata, courtesy Sanjha Chulha, a famous restaurant in the city. Installed outside their eatery, the refrigerator is open to everyone who wishes to donate leftover food for those who go hungry.
Hunger is a global menace that threatens to snatch lives away. Every human has a right to satiate his hunger and Indians are doing everything in their power to make sure food reaches the needy. This noble drive came into being as part of a ‘Hunger Free Kolkata’ initiative in partnership with P.R.A.N.The refrigerator installed comes with a camera to keep a track of the storage capacity. This helps people gauge the available capacity of the fridge before they donate.
Apart from this, the restaurant is now planning to roll out meal packages as donations to the underprivileged.
The food ATM went live on August 15 because what better day to help the needy enjoy their freedom to eat?
