In the first few days itself, many hosts across the country have signed up to donate excess food from their weddings”, said Ankit Kawatra, Founder, Feeding India
Meals with Love is an initiative by Feeding India to partner with couples who wish to limit food wastage at their weddings and contribute towards the social cause. If every wedding in India follows this benevolent gesture, a phenomenal impact can be reached in terms of reach and impact towards food wastage. The cost of just one single food plate at wedding events in India is enough to feed 100 children. The aim is for every couple to set an example for every wedding across the country.
