About Us

No one should sleep hungry


The initiative was launched by Shri Subhash Talekar, Grandson and Spokesman of MDA which will now be scaled up with the help of Mr D Sivanandhan and Nitin Khanapurkar. A separate NGO, Mumbai Roti bank will be formed under the leadership of Subhashbhau Talekar and mentorship of Mr Sivanandhan. The NGO will aim to collect food which otherwise goes wasted in lavish function and even in household which will be redistributed to thousands of people in slums who go hungry. The NGO has dedicated 24X7 helpline 8655580001. There are 190 miliion people go hungry daily in India. The NGO after scaling up in Mumbai will endeavour to cover pan India with the support of India Inc.


We are a food rescue organization. We pick up freshly prepared food from regulated food businesses, such as hotels, arenas, and cafeterias, and deliver it safely to serve the hungry. It is a simple concept with a simple solution.

Many of the people being served are children and working adults earning minimum wage, who need assistance to make ends meet. It is essential that we redirect perfectly edible surplus food away from the landfill to the people who really need it.

Our Mission

The non-profit initiative aims at preventing food wastage at weddings and functions by collecting excess food and distributing it among the homeless and needy. The acclaimed tiffin delivery network achieves this with the help of dabbawalas who, after their work hours, take part in collection and re-distribution of leftover food.
