Coimbatore-based NGO “No Food Waste” collects surplus food from all over cities and then distributes it to the underprivileged in order to control food waste and feed the hungry. The NGO’s app maps out the “hungry spots” such as government hospitals, orphanages and the places where people cannot afford food.
However, the NGO’s Chennai chapter – set up in 2015 – was forced to shut down due to lack of volunteers and resources. But from February this year, a fresh lease of life has been infused in the Chennai chapter of the NGO with the municipal corporation offering one of its shelters for its operations.
No Food Waste is currently operational in three states – Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala – and would like to expand its reach to other states. They heavily rely on donations so they need more people to come forward to help them.
