FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR SANGOLDA GOA presents you 3 of our Active Food Bank Fridges in Goa.
Prior to the lockdown ie 21.3.2020 , we @ FOOD BANK GOA had 38 fridges installed in Goa daily picking up & moving about 1500kgs – 2000 kgs to these fridges daily.
The lockdown caused alot of hardships as the total food collection stopped for almost 3 months.
But now as the relaxation has started, we are now daily getting about 400 kgs of food which we use :
☆ 200 kgs for our rehabilitation homes ,
☆ 100 kgs for the active operating fridges
☆ 50 kgs to old aged homes & orphanage
☆ 50 kgs wastage or spoilage .
The attached 3 pictures are of the active fridges run by FMCK congregation at :
♡ 1. Old Goa
♡ 2. POMBPURPA
♡ 3. Panjim @ piedade institute .
▪︎1. The fridge at Old Goa stands out, as it has been running ( even during the pandemic ) for close to 3 years .
The nuns at old GOA have a fixed set of poor goan families from that area who daily get food from this fridge.
▪︎2. The fridge at POMBPURPA in Bardez shut down from March till early Oct , but is now back on track and caters to alot of poor labourers in that area .
This fridge has been operating for the last 2 years and is run by the FMCK nuns .
▪︎3. The fridge at Panjim @ piedade institute is just started and I am sure the FMCK nun was inspired to start this fridge after seeing the other 2 fridges serving the poor and hungry
For those in the above areas, you can always drop extra food in plastic bags in these fridges so that a poor family might be able to eat a meal.
All food is always checked & Incase the food is not up to the mark , our volunteers usually dispose the food off as waste.
We are now on track to reactivate in the month of November at least 20 more of our FOOD BANK fridges in different parts of GOA .
As most of our food bank volunteers are senior citizens, we understand that they need to take precaution due to the pandemic.
