Food Glorious Food!!
India is hungry. Not just for economic development and social justice, but for grain, for fruit, for seed, for poultry, for milk. The most rustic kind of hunger, is the hunger of both the father mother and the child for survival. India is one of the highest ranking countries in the world in children suffering from malnutrition.
In its annual calculations of the Gross Hunger Index (GHI) for 2016, The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) placed India at 97 among 118 developing countries. Those worse than India were Niger, Chad, Ethiopia and Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Neighbouring countries that scored better were Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and China.
As reported by Times of India in Patna,
Bihar is one of the most undernourished states.
"With the percentage of stunted children being around 48.3%, Bihar is one of the most undernourished states of India, as per the National Family Health Survey 4 (NFHS)
Our Nutritious meal programme brings a healthy protein meal to children which makes all the difference in terms of health.
It is not doled out in a humiliating fashion but it is prepared by the community in a way which brings them together in the preparation, serving and sharing of the food with the most vulnerable members of the local community.
Thank you for your support, you are putting smiles on the faces of the children and hot delicious healthy food in their stomachs!
