Did you think of the ones who do not get two meals a day, the last time you fussed about the taste of your food? Did you feel guilty the last time you threw away the extra food that was lying in your refrigerator for days? Did you feel bad when you left food unfinished at the restaurant?

India,the second most populous country in the world has the largest hungry population in the world.Almost 20% of our people go to bed without sufficient and nutritious food every day.3,000 children in India die every day,the cause being some or the other poor diet related illness. 50% of India’s children are chronically malnourished and close to 1.3 million of these die every year. Hunger kills more people every year than AIDS,Malaria and Tuberculosis combined.We have more mouths than we can feed, we say.That’s not entirely true. 40% of food goes waste in India. Food worth Rs. 58,000 crores is wasted on a yearly basis.This wasted food is enough to feed more than 40% of the poor.
