a scene from a regular day in our lives - Casually walking into a restaurant with our family to enjoy a lovely meal.
You suddenly gaze out and see a few sweet little faces looking at you from the other side of the glass door. Their eyes seem to speak volumes. They seem to be hoping for tit-bits that has been abandoned on the plates by your children who ironically are over stuffed with all the goodies that you had ordered.
That’s how Food4Smile™ was initiated (on August 01, 2015 we started feeding 150 underprivileged @ Gurugram, Haryana every Saturday & Sunday) – a small initiative taken by few responsible individuals who wanted to play a tiny part in bringing smiles to a few faces of under privileged children.
It is an emotional and satisfying sight to see a child eat a nutritious meal.
The satisfaction is even greater if WE play a part in bringing a smile on their faces.
Food is the basic human right of every living being and nobody should die of hunger. We all need to stand up for this cause and strive towards ending it, to make this world a better place to live in.
Hunger is the world’s biggest SOLVABLE problem and so, we need to join hands and do as much as possible until it’s not a problem anymore!
