Indian weddings are best known for celebrations and high-end culinary fests. We tend to ensure the guests are satisfied with the food served. The vast range comprising of multi-cultural cuisines, continental delicacies and exotic drinks and lot more have become significant part of the weddings. We also should know weddings have a whole host of potential issues - one of the least talked about of which is food safety. Whether you went with a wedding caterer or the venue’s buffet, we know that wedding food is one of the largest expenses when planning the big day.
While some of it can be packed off to friends and relatives, most of it goes to waste. Often, after a big party at home is over, we wonder what to do with the food. The FAO estimates that as many as 25,000 people lose their lives every day as a result of hunger. That adds up to roughly 9.1 million people who die of starvation each year. Even after knowing this it is disheartening to see all of those leftovers go to waste, so why not donate it?
We believe that every occasion in life that calls for a celebration is unique. You can make your special day even more special by helping the needy. There are some NGO’s out there who take the excess food from you, and ensure it reaches the underprivileged.
R B Shivakumar is one of them here in Bangalore. The sight of loads of pulao being emptied into a garbage dump is what made him a person who turned his anger into action. He is a social activist picks up leftover food from wedding halls, parties, hotels, as well as houses (if there is big quantity) and distributes it to the needy. Before agreeing to pick up the food, Mr. Shivakumar tastes it. He also picks up only vegetarian food. He can be reached at 9900568514. So please make use of it and let us all help the needy. Your wedding is the most auspicious day of your life, make it more meaningful by donating the appetizing leftover food to the underprivileged and spread smiles.
