FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR, SANGOLDA GOA, saves 14000 kgs or 14 tonnes of good extra food from reaching the garbage dumps enough to feed 1600 meals a day .
Attached a small video 👇
As of today we have installed 25 fridges in public places to accept extra cooked food.
Of which 11 fridges are installed in Goa Police Stations which are open 24*7.
Although 14 tonnes is a substantial amount its just 5 – 10% of the total food extra cooked food that is daily wasted in Goa .
Our Food Bank is accepting / collecting
400 kgs to 500 kgs daily, but over
5000 kgs to 10000 kgs daily of good cooked food is reaching the dustbin.
And guess who is to take care of this wastage?
Its the FDA / FSSAI @ Bambolim.
FDA / FSSAI has a superb website which PROUDLY DISPLAYS an inniatitve to SAVE FOOD FEED FOOD .
But then who cares and who bothers.
All are closings their eyes to this PARTICULAR issue of such huge food wastage but the press conferences and press releases are being done.
We are the ONLY FOOD BANK across Goa last
5 years working towards feeding the poor and saving the environment and its a very expensive service as there are huge logistic costs in running food banks and feeding the poor daily.
But its a passion AND SERVICE which keeps us doing what we are doing- feeding the poor.
Lots of co ordination and communication involved daily in running food bank fridges.
This month on a average we provide food meals close to 1600 meals a day daily through this food that we accept and collect daily.
We are the only STATE in INDIA where one will find FOOD BANK FRIDGES in POLICE STATIONS .
Even THE Honourable Governor of Goa is supporting our FOOD BANK for the last 9 months by donating 100 fresh meals every week.
But the sad part is FDA / FSSAI BAMBOLIM are just ignoring our services by refusing to understand how to run food banks and how to save tonnes of good extra food from being wasted.
