FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR, SANGOLDA GOA accepts and receives close to 15000 kgs of good cooked food in our fridges installed across Goa during the entire month of Jan 23
If not for our fridges this food would have reached the bins.
More than 6000 kgs Have been deposited in our fridges installed at the 11 police station with Panjim police station fridge alone accepting more than 2000 kgs in the month of January 23
Our Sangolda Chogm Road fridge Also received close to 3000 kgs food in the month of January.
Our concept which was conceptualized 5 years back of installing fridges in Goa at public places
Is now giving the results and in huge abundance.
Many times a small section of society ridiculed me and passed statements that the food bank fridges are not receiving any food.
Yes that was true from 1.4.2020 to 31.12.21 during the Covid waves as there was no weddings, parties, etc .
And the entire system had shut down.
During this entire period of 1.4.2020 to 31.12.21 we distributed dry ration worth Rs 80 lacs as we had numerous families depending on this dry ration.
Last 1 year, our food bank is back on track and month after month the food deposited in our fridges across Goa is increasing.
The idea of getting fridges installed in major police stations turned out to be a blessings.
Easily accessible and 24 *7 open .
No questions asked nor any hurdles in dropping the extra food .
Our 8 shelter homes are comfortably taken care by these fridges bank fridges.
All our inmates thank all of you who take the trouble of dropping your extra food in our fridges.
Also these fridges have saved tons of good food going waste in the last 5 years as we are the only NGO in GOA running food bank fridges continously last 5 years .
Not am easy service as food has to be picked up from each fridge, checked thoroughly, stored at correct temperature and redistributed quickly.
Costs alot of time , energy and money as a fixed manpower & car is employed full time to get these 500 kgs daily to people in need to food.
God bless you all
