FOOD BANK has installed 36 food freezers across Goa. Fresh edible excess food collected from Canteens, Eateries, Hotels, Caterers & Bakeries is kept in these freezers. Excess food from Individual homes after family functions can also be placed in the freezers. Our volunteers heat up the food and serve the poor and the under privileged in that area.

BREAKFAST AT GOA MEDICAL COLLEGE & IPHB
STREET PROVIDENCE provides Breakfast to the relatives of patients at the Goa Medical College and the IPHB in Bambolim.
It was brought to our notice that many relatives of patients who come from distant villages to the GMC and IPHB Bambolim cannot afford to have all their meals at eateries in proximity to the hospitals.
As a humanitarian gesture, STREET PROVIDENCE has taken up the task of serving breakfast on a daily basis to these people every morning. Relatives of patients as well as the labour class around that area come and avail of this free breakfast. The response is overwhelming and from the first day itself we are catering to over 100 people.
Benefactors can sponsor the Breakfast at Rs. 1,500/- per day for 100 people.
