FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR SANGOLDA GOA is back to feeding on the streets after a 10 days break during this COVID 19.
And that too with a very innovative idea .
Read on .
☆ 1. NAVTARA GROUP OF RESTAURANTS have started a innovative way of reaching out to the homeless and needy in Goa along with Food Bank.
All you need to do is buy / pay for a meal coupon everytime u eat a meal at any of NAVTARA outlets across GOA.
Once you buy this coupon you can hand it over to a needy person/ homeless person who you might come across in your locality, who can then redeem these coupons at any outlet of Navtara across Goa OR
You can drop it in a box which is placed in each of the NAVTARA outlet .
Daily these coupons will be handed over to our volunteers in the respective area who then will distribute these coupons to the homeless people in that area .
For over a year now Navtara has been donating every night fresh food to our food bank fridges as well as to our rehabilitation homes spread across GOA for the homeless street people.
Except for initial 15 days during the lockdown , otherwise daily we used to get about 200 to 300 kgs across all 11 outlets.
Everyday this Quantity would be redistributed on the streets of Goa .
Post Lockdown the Quantity is about 40 to 50 kgs which is still enough to feed our men in our rehabilitation homes.
Today Navtara ie Carlos & Aditya
( & Team ) has started another innovative way of feeding the homeless along with our FOOD BANK volunteers through these COUPONS.
