Hungry No More | Time to beat the Food Crisis

Hungry No More | Time to beat the Food Crisis 150 150 uw india

The COVID-19 lockdown has brought a serious shortage of essentials across the country. In the aftermath of this lockdown, the weaker sections of our society are clueless about how to get food for their families. The Global Hunger Index 2019 ranks India as suffering from a ‘level of hunger that is serious.’ And now in 2020, several million people, living in deprived urban and rural areas, lack access to adequate food, as well as information about the availability of community kitchens, which has led to food insecurity in India. 

Taking cognizance of this, to combat Hunger and provide food aid to people living in a crisis, United Way India (UWI) started the ‘Hungry No More’ campaign to support people with two meals a day. By adhering to all safety and hygiene measures, the United Way India network has begun its relief service by providing food kits to the marginalized and low-income segment of the society comprising of daily wage workers, migrant laborers, construction site workers, and other needy people.

With the help of local communities across the country, UWI has distributed thousands of food kits and setting up Cloud Community Kitchen for a sustainable future. The Hungry No More campaign is catering to millions of people with food that eventually helps them to regain their strength and fight starvation. Presently, the UWI network is providing food relief in Ahmedabad, Baroda, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, Surat, and Vishakhapatnam.
