Feed the Hungry Drives

This International Volunteer Day, you can be the change. Whether you are an individual volunteer, a volunteer leader or a representative from a school, college, NGO or organisation, Bhumi is committed to working with you and supporting you in joining this movement towards a Hunger Free India.

What are we going to do as part of the movement?

Step 1: Group of volunteers from a local community, society, school, college, NGO or organisation form a community

Step 2: Nearby hunger spot or zone is identified wherein the feed the hungry drive can be conducted

Step 3: Decide whether food would be prepared by the volunteer or brought from a nearby place or excess collected from nearby hotel or occasion

Step 4: Date, time and venue of preparing the food or collecting food finalised

Step 5: On the day of the drive, food is prepared/collected and distributed in the hunger spot

Sign up and our team will get back to you. We may not be able to provide Bhumi facilitators in all scenarios based on the availability and preferences. If your institution or organisation is expected to engage more than 300 volunteers and we have facilitators available during that time in the city, we would be happy to have them facilitate the drive.

Our preferred option however is that we are able to empower someone from your institution or organisation to set the event up with our support. The event setup is extremely simple and you also have groomed a leader internally in your team.
