Millennium Fellowship Project: Feeding Foundation
The "Feeding Foundation" project aims to provide food to the needy, raise awareness about food waste, and work to eliminate hunger in society. We intend to reach out to those in need and provide them with food. We would accomplish our goal of feeding the needy by utilising our volunteer network and collaborating with restaurants to distribute the leftover food. We want to build our volunteer network by motivating individuals to work towards the cause and promote through them to expand the network of volunteers. We hope to build a large network of volunteers and make a difference in the lives of 500 or more people. In addition, we would organise awareness campaigns about food waste and how leftover food can be used.
