Shrimad Rajchandra Hunger Relief Programme is an initiative to distribute food to the poor and homeless in several cities across India and around the world. The United Nations reports that hunger and malnutrition are the biggest risks to health— greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. There are approximately 80.5 crore undernourished people in the world today and India is home to its highest number than any other country - 19.4 crore! Our programme is tackling this issue by mobilising teams of volunteers that provide food supplies to the needy in several cities across the world.
In addition to the food distribution drives, we also distribute buttermilk, a highly nutritious beverage, in rural areas throughout the year. Over 1.80 lakh litres of fresh buttermilk is distributed through three Shrimad Rajchandra Chaas Vitran Kendras. In addition, buttermilk is provided to 10 rural schools.
