FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR SANGOLDA GOA Installs 2 more fridges in Police Stations across Goa @ Cuncolim & Sanguem. 
Director General Of Police , Mr I.D.Shukla sir, has appreciated and welcomed this initiative in Police Stations. 
We @ The Food Bank Sangolda are humbled by the DGP of Goa understanding of the poor , hungry and homeless and I believe , DGP has encouraged the Police Inspectors in Police Stations to support our work in feeding the hungry through the fridges. 
On 24.2.2022, we installed a fridge at Cuncolim Police station in the presence of Inspector Mr Sachind Panalkar , who I have personally not met , but who has brought big relief in his past posting of getting an unwed girl , mentally challenged , off her agony of the streets, when he knew we have such rehab Homes for ladies. 
Simple , understanding and polite Inspector is what I can conclude of Mr Sachind . 
Our Volunteer from Velim , Mrs Elaine & her husband Mr Daniel who have been part of our food program last 4 years will be incharge of this fridge and were present for the inauguration. 
Today 26.2.2022,  we installed another fridge at Sanguem Police station. 
♡♡ Thanks to Inspector Mr Hiru kavlekar, for inaugrating this fridge and supporting our mission of saving good food from being wasted and which in turn can feed the hungry . 
Not yet got an opportunity to start work with PI Hiru, but he too undetstands hunger & Homelessness 
♡♡ Thanks to our Operation Manager , Mr Sapnesh Salgaonkar for taking the trouble of getting these fridges across Goa to both these Police stations from Porvorim and being present on both days for the inaugration. 
♡♡ Also thanks to our team members :
Mr Douglas Pinto from Porvorim home &
Mr Akash Pednekar from Quepem home 
Both were present during these two fridges inaugration. 
With more fridges planned across Goa we are committed to saving good food from being wasted and as well as feeding the hungry in different parts across Goa. 
Our programs are not only in Urban cities but we also are having a very very strong presence across rural Goa. 
Very soon , we will feeding thousands of meals a day right across Goa as there is a huge quantity of good food being wasted daily . 
Something big is going to happen with those suffering fron hunger and feeding the poor in Goa and we are putting the infrastructure at our cost in place as soon as possible and looking for Volunteers. 
Our NGO is trying to get all major Government agencies / departments togther to address Homelessness/ Beggars / hunger / Pwds / ABANDONED ladies / street children and its getting a good and huge response. 
But the main cost is food and the solution is food banks . 
Superb support from IAS & IPS officers who are understanding the mammoth work our NGO is undertaking for the last 5 years. 
Also alot , I mean alot of Goan government officials are going out of their way to help us address the issue in our fight against hunger , homeless & people with disabilities. 
Our NGO has no political God Father nor do we intend to enter politics . 
God bless you
