In India, a local restaurant helps feed the homeless by leaving their fridge out on the street.
Minu Pauline, the owner of the Pappadavada restaurant in Kochi, came up with this idea after she saw a poor woman digging in the trash for something to eat. Having tons of leftovers back in her shop, Pauline felt she needed to do something, so she put a fridge out front of her eatery.
She calls it ‘nanma maram’ or ‘tree of goodness’, it’s open 24/7, and is filled with donations from customers – as well as 75 to 80 portions from herself – with each one labeled with the date it was put in.
Minu hopes that, besides feeding the hungry, the project will inspire others to avoid food wastage.
