A Gurgaon based company known as Rasoi Wheels turned an old Maruti van in to a mobile kitchen which provides hygienically-packed meal boxes and transports 30,000 meals every month to the underprivileged.
Operating in Delhi, ‘Rasoi On Wheels’ works out of a small Maruti van, converted into a meal-serving vehicle to bring food to those who have experienced hunger much worse than most of us.
They started with an 800 sq. ft. kitchen and a van to distribute around 11,000 meals a month and now they have come up to 30,000 free meals every month.
This is an initiative by the founders of Q’BA Restaurant in Cannaught Place and is also funded by some kind hearted donors.
Atul Kapur is the man who launched ‘Rasoi on Wheels’. He is one of the five business partners who run QBA restaurant in Connaught Place, who calls it an individual’s social responsibility.
To avoid mess and make the exercise more hygienic and convenient, the food is served in meal boxes.
This shows that the world is changing. It’s not the Government but the common people who are bringing the change.
Poverty and hunger is one of the biggest problems in India. We need more of such initiatives.
