A FitFortunes Initiative
Helping Hands ‘Food for All’
Together FitFortunes and Smilence run a food distribution campaign for disadvantaged families in Rishikesh. Team comprises Devesh Narwal, Manish Chopra, Naman Singhal and foreign nationals who are all taking careful actions and positive steps towards preventative measures, to ensure the access to food for all, striving for zero hunger in Rishikesh and nearby areas.
The Helping Hands
FitFortunes invites like-minded individuals and organizations to donate and help us ensure momentum and success of the feeding campaign and ‘Food for all’ during this time of crisis, possible with the help of locals, our dear friends, foreign volunteers and permission from the local authorities. Helping Hands ‘Food for All’ prepares and distributes food hampers containing basic grocery essentials which will feed a family of 4 for one week.
The hampers include but are not limited to:-
- 3½ kg of wheat flour
- 1½ kg of rice
- 1¼ kg of pulses/lentils
- Cooking Oil
- Salt, tumeric & red chilli Powder
The ‘Helping Hands’ initiative extends their kind efforts to the poor and homeless as well as low-income households which survive on daily cash earnings to feed their families. Rishikesh is well-known as a spiritual sanctuary for many and therefore it is also home to a large number of daily wages workers, labourers and homeless people who cannot feed themselves during this lockdown period. The government is helping but we want to give our efforts too to help the needy.
In the Yoga capital of the World, brothers & sisters want to inspire the gift of giving by sharing their example of Karma yoga, Selfless service with everyone. They are appealing to those more abundant during this unfortunate phase which is affecting many in a very critical way, to dig deep into their pockets, to pledge and share.
With support from local authorities the team manages regular distribution of food in an organized way and ensures that those most in need will receive your gifts.
Team purchases local produce, prepares them into smaller parcels (ensuring everyone follows good food hygiene practices) and distributes with the help and organization of local authorities.
Abundance is a shared blessing. Please extend your kindness to others.
Namaste – Thank you
