“Starvation is the characteristic of some people not having enough food to eat.
It is not the characteristic of there being not enough food to eat”
— Amartya Sen

India is a net food exporter since FY14-15. Yet, India ranked 94th out of 107 countries in the 2020 Global Hunger Index.

This is primarily owing to low budgetary allocations and the absence of a universal public distribution system (PDS) at the systemic level as well as declining relative incomes, low produce of small and marginal farmers at the grassroots level.

India fights the second wave of malnutrition

The onset of the pandemic exacerbated the starvation situation. 92% of India’s workforce is in the informal sector, including construction workers, domestic help and street-side vendors. State lockdowns disrupted income flow and led to loss of livelihoods, which directly affected food security.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought in its wake two other pandemics, those of poverty and hunger. Hunger further leads to malnutrition and lowered immunity, increasing the risk of COVID-19 and other infections.

About Every Infant Matters

Founded by Dr. Radhika Batra (Paediatrician and  2019 Forbes 30 under 30 Asia Honoree) in 2017, Every Infant Matters aims to provide last mile healthcare solutions to the underserved communities across India, Kenya, Nigeria and Dominican Republic. Within India, the NGO operates in Delhi, Maharashtra, U.P., the North Eastern states and Orissa.

Since February-2020, EIM has distributed over 10K+ masks, grocery kits and PPE kits to 5K+ workers and over 30K sanitiser bottles to the most vulnerable sections of society within its areas of operations.

The ‘Million Meals’ Project in association with Zomato Feeding India Initiative

“We cannot let our children starve to death. This is why we have started the Million Meals Project,” says Dr. Radhika Batra, Founder and President of Every Infant Matters.

EIM volunteers go out every day afternoon and serve freshly cooked nutritious meals to those who are hungry specially to workers who have lost their jobs. The time has come that every person must work towards preventing hunger and saving lives.

The NGO has partnered with Zomato Feeding India Initiative and currently distributes 1,200 meals/day. Needless to say that the need is much more. While Zomato has pledged endless support with freshly cooked nutritious meals, the challenge lies in the inability to scale up the project because of lack of funds.

We are raising funds to sponsor the distribution cost of 1,200 freshly cooked daily meals for the families of the underserved people in Delhi for a period of 3 months.

The cost of distribution comes to INR ~6/meal that includes fuel charges, staff salary and other transportation expenses.

“The journey of a million meals begins with a single grain of rice, a single idea, and a single group of dedicated people focussed on eliminating hunger”
— Dr. Radhika Batra

Together, we can ensure that EIM’s work does not stop and that people do not go to bed hungry. Make a donation on the ShareALittle platform and spread the word of the campaign to your friends and family. Remember that each penny matters because a little goes a long way! Join the movement and help us distribute a million meals.

Note: All donations are eligible for a deduction under section 80G of the Income Tax Act.
