My contribution to Akshaya-Patra

Posted: December 8, 2014 in Memories

Few days back I was surprised to see news on google “Man Installs Refrigerator Outside his Home to Feed the Needy” This is really a different thinking.

Most of us buy fridge even it is in good condition. The reasons varies like we want new model of fridge, we want bigger size and so on. Normally, while buying we do not forget to ask the dealer how much he will deduct amount in exchange of old fridge. But we never think differently as this man has thought and done. His simple act of installing the fridge outside his house, can serve fresh food to many needy. Since it is outside the house, even neighbors or passerby can use it to store the food instead of throwing it.

akshaya-patra-blogaddaIt has been observed in most cases that the food we donate is not immediately consumed by the person. Even we do not take care to preserve before giving it to needy person. So does it really a good habit to donate food which is not at all hygienic? If the food which we cannot eat for some reason, how the other person can eat it?

However, it is not always that we give the unhygienic food to others. I have observed it many times, that beggars collect the food which we throw in dustbin or outside our house or even outside food courts. So unknowingly we contribute to feed unhealthy food to others.

I really find this man who has installed a refrigerator outside his house has done a great thing. How? Many celebrities, rich people pose while donating food to needy people. However, he has done a very small thing where many other can contribute. He has not done it for frame.

May be that small news was imprinted in my mind and when I saw ‘One blog post can feed one child for a year!’ I thought why not contribute a small drop in Akshay Patra? I am going to #BlogToFeedAChild with Akshaya Patra and BlogAdda.
