A Great Good Deed: This Hyderabadi Is Delivering Home Made Meals For Free To The Needy

If you think this lockdown is harsh on us, think about those who are underprivileged and those who are in their twilight years. And with many small restaurants and tiffin centres being shut, it's especially difficult for those living alone to get their hands on essentials like food. In these grave times, Venkat Murali, a 53-year-old good Samaritan has been distributing cooked meals for free to several in need. 

Running the NGO "No Food Waste" for the past five years, he has seven volunteers who cook meals at home and distribute the packets to many locations in the city. For this, they use disposable food-grade packaging that mostly includes dishes like rice, dal, curry, chutney, sambar, and curd. And the fact that all this is free of cost (including the packaging and delivery) is awesome and commendable. 

Often delivering to those in need in areas like Hi-Tech City, Jubilee Hills, and Somajiguda, this NGO recently got a call from an old-age home in Choutuppal with 370 senior citizens. Always ready to take such orders and offer help, anyone can give the NGO a call and take things forward. After working with the Robin Hood Army, Venkat Murali started this NGO and operates out of Srinagar Colony.
