In Kochi, no one will go hun­gry

Gulf News - - INDIA -

While politi­cians in In­dia have been promis­ing roti, kapda and makaan (food, cloth­ing and shel­ter) to all for seven decades, a char­i­ta­ble trust in Ker­ala’s com­mer­cial cap­i­tal, Kochi has de­cided to en­sure that at least the first of the three is re­alised in the city.

The trust, named For An­nam (rice) Char­ity Ease (FACE), launched its pro­gramme called Ak­shaya­p­athram in Kochi this week, of­fer­ing free food to any­one at any time of the day.

The free food ser­vice op­er­ates out of a rented house at Ayyap­pankavu. Those in need of food can go up to the house, ring a bell and be served food for free.

“Our ob­jec­tive is sim­ple: No one should go with­out food in this city. Our cen­tre is open all through the night, too, so that those who ap­proach us can al­ways be as­sured there will be some food”, FACE au­di­tor T. Vi­nay Ku­mar told Gulf News.
