Hi , my name is Taira Bhargava , and I study in grade 12 at The Shri Ram School, Moulsari.
The one notion that engages me deeply is my naive eagerness to rectify the chasm of hunger and malnutrition that India is strangled in.
It all happened when I attended a flamboyant wedding last year— I marvelled at the amount of food that was lavishly concocted and due to my inquisitive persona I decided to stay back and see what happened to it . At 12:10am when the ceremony concluded , I witnessed heaps of excess food being sent straight to the bin which could have fed over 250 people just that night.
I ruminated about this vexatious sight and enquired extensively. This is when it dawned upon me that we live in a place where hunger is rampant and a feature intrinsic to Delhi. India is home to millions of undernourished people and tops the hunger list globally- Thats why I chose to tackle this pressing issue by channelizing the surplus food from bakeries and create an organised distributing network between the bakery and the end consumer in a safe , hygienic and fair manner. This leads to a reduction in food wastage across the state and yet providing an extra bite of food to those in need.
I am trying to raise funds in order to fund the transportation and delivery of goods from the bakery to the shortlisted missionaries and boarding schools namely Cheshire home , Kasturba Balika Vidyalaya and Mother Teresas, Missionaries of charity
