Compassionate citizens driving change within their communities
Our Hunger Heroes
City President, Nashik Chapter
When we go for food donation drives, children come running towards us with their utensils. They are grateful for healthy meals and at times, just because they are getting to eat something they never could have afforded. I am proud to be spreading awareness about food wastage in our country.
It feels great when my friends and even my family call me a Hunger Hero now :) I'm glad to be doing this and am calling on all others in India to help us fight food wastage, malnutrition and hunger.

Hunger Hero, Bangalore Chapter
Apart from being a student of architecture, being a hunger hero is my new identity. I'm aware of the imbalance in my society, hence it gives me a sense of responsibility to contribute & maintain the equilibrium. What better way than taking someones excess food and diverting to people in desperate need.
Zomato Feeding India has also given me a platform to explore my management and organising skills by allowing me to conduct events etc.
Hunger Hero, Pune Chapter
I have always strongly believed that children are innocent and should be nurtured. I found my passion in Zomato Feeding India, because their programs have enabled me to help children from poor and underprivileged sections. I hope this movement grows and something is done to stop children from begging and selling balloons etc on traffic stops to feed themselves or others. Every child deserves access to healthy food and education. No child should have to beg for food.
