Roti banks in India feed hungry people

Roti bank is a new and unique concept aimed to solve the hunger problems of underprivileged.

The Roti bank is a self-group which is mainly dedicated to feed those in need in society.

Roti bank, the first of its kind bank was started in Maharashtra, the second is in Uttar Pradesh, and another bank is in Delhi, and now the concept has been reaching more states.

Different roti banks have different procedures to collect rotis.

Despite the difference in their rules and way of collecting food, their motive is to stop food wastage and feed hungry people that lack food.

The roti bank in Maharashtra was launched by Yusuf Mukati in Aurangabad.

People who want to help the poor by way of food have to fill the membership form from the bank after which they will be provided with a specific code number along with the carry bags.

Since then, they have to deliver daily at least two rotis and a plate of vegetarian or non-vegetarian food that is prepared at their homes.

Working time of the bank is 11:00 a. m. to 11:00 p. m.

People can voluntarily deposit rotis for the poor, sick and unemployed once or more in a day and the people who want the food can come and collect it according to their convenience.

The food will be disbursed only after checking the quality and freshness. This bank is serving more than 500 people every day.

The bank which is being run by a group of around 45 people in Mahoba visits each and every home daily and asks them to donate at least two rotis to feed hungry people.

Now with the support of villagers, this bank feeds over 400 people each day.

Many caterers also offer food voluntarily to this bank.

The concept of this bank is to stop wastage of food and so they do not take much food from the donors unless they find beneficiaries.

Another bank in Delhi collects rotis and chutney in a packet daily from collection centres throughout the city and distributes them to the poor people who need them.

Currently, this bank is serving 1,800 packets daily.
