In an Odisha first, two voluntary organizations on Sunday installed a community refrigerator in front of a restaurant at Sainik School square here to feed hungry people of the city. People, who have surplus food, can donate to the fridge instead of throwing it.
The initiative is jointly taken by two organizations- Bhubaneswar Knights Round Table (BKRT) and Bhubaneswar Queens Ladies Circle (BQLC). They named the community fridge initiative as ‘Annapurna’.
The motive of the initiative is to eliminate food wastage and feed the hungry people. “We don’t want anyone to sleep hungry in pain or worry about food,” said Anuradha Vishesh Agrawal, chairperson of BQLC.
