With just 20 volunteers, Robin Hood Army (RHA, a zero funds organisation) was started in Delhi in 2014 by Neel Ghose, Anand Sinha and Aarushi Batra. And now, it is spread across 182 cities in more than 12 countries. Modelled on Portugal’s ‘Re-Food Program’, it is a team of volunteers, called Robins, who collect surplus food from restaurants and distribute it to the poor and homeless. So, how does it work? Each city has several chapters. Each chapter gets in touch with restaurants or caterers in an area and at the end of the day, they collect and donate food.
PS: They have been distributing food items to a lot of people across the globe on a daily basis at their doorsteps to help them survive during this pandemic. And they also have Robin Hood Academy with a standardised curriculum for the kids.
