Tons of food is wasted every day, particularly in India, whether it is at a wedding function or a restaurant. Founder of Akshaya Aahara Foundation (AAF) had a similar experience at an event 5 years ago where he noticed huge surplus of food being thrown out on the streets after it ended.
Akshaya Ahara Foundation's model: The term 'food philanthropy' was formalized by AAF. Their motto is 'Waste Not, Want Not. Food Waste, Not in Good Taste'. With an objective to collect un-used surplus of food from events and distribute the same to the hungry with no access to food.
Over the years, AAF has managed to collect and re-distribute an average of 300,000 meals of unused prepared food, every year, thereby saving the nation around ₹125 lakh annually, by utilizing surplus prepared food.
