We Should Be Thankful To These Unsung Heroes Who Are Feeding Poor In Tough Times

There are many people in this world who are so poor that they can’t even afford daily meals and many times they don’t have money to buy food for themselves. It is certainly very disturbing that some people have to sleep empty stomach but there are some people and institutions which are constantly working towards providing food to the hungry and that too, either free of cost or at very less cost.

We will also talk about those who did a commendable job during the coronavirus lockdown and other occasions:

1.Gurudwaras: There are many gurudwaras which organize “langar (free food)” on a daily basis and they act as support system for poor people. During the coronavirus lockdown, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee started the campaign, “langar on wheels” especially for the migrant workers who were returning to their native on foot. In fact 15 new vehicles were used by the committee to provide food to the needy on various parts of the Delhi border.

Once while talking to ANI, Rani said that her family has been running this shop for three generations and they don’t charge anything from poor people. A plate of idli which cost Rs. 30 at their shop will cost around Rs. 80-100 in other restaurants.
