Some Facts and Figures
1 in 10 persons in the world is hungry.
More than 19 crore people in India suffer from hunger and malnutrition, representing about a quarter of the world's hungry and malnourished population.
India is home to the largest number of hungry and malnourished people in the world, although it is also one of the leading producers of wheat, rice, pulses and fresh fruits in the world.
Around 3000 children in India will not wake up tomorrow due to illnesses related to poor diet.
A Bit About Us
As the above facts and figures reveal, we have not yet been able to meet one of the most basic of all human needs - food. This is despite the level of development that has taken place over the past few decades. The world has reached technological heights like never before. India is one the fastest growing economies in the world today. However, the benefits of development have clearly not reached those who are the most underprivileged.
Foodshaala Foundation is the result of our determination to change this disturbing reality and make true the vision of a food- and nutrition-secure world. Here at Foodshaala, we are committed to the mission of enabling people from low-income communities to meet their basic food and nutrition requirements. We work with low-income communities to facilitate setting up of community kitchens which can serve the local food requirements in a sustainable and empowering manner. In addition, we also work towards behaviour change and providing basic health services with the aim to tackle hunger and malnutrition.
