Khaana Chahiye Foundation aims at eliminating the hunger crisis of Urban India through our relief and advocacy efforts. It started as a citizen-led campaign in March 2020 to meet the immediate, lockdown-induced food demands of the homeless, migrant workers, daily wage workers and other vulnerable populations in the city of Mumbai. While at the face of it Mumbai has bounced back to normalcy, the situation at the grassroot level is grim. Lakhs of communities are still living in uncertainty.

#AThoughtForFood. No one should have to wonder where their next meal will come from. We are ensuring that we reach out to the most vulnerable communities through our SOS Grocery and Cooked meals operations. These are community-driven projects which serve the dual purpose of eliminating hunger and reviving the local economy.

2 Community Kitchens

In our quest to support sustainable livelihoods, we have been supporting community Kitchens led by all-women self- help groups.

●Initially, community kitchens were started as a part of our relief operations. However today our community kitchens are at the forefront of our battle against hunger. We support 2 fully functional community kitchens in Kurla and Ulhasnagar. We have now moved forward from simply providing relief, to making Food -Nutrition Security and sustainable livelihoods our focus areas.

●Our idea is to empower one marginalized community to support another marginalized community by building sustainable models of development.

●The Kurla community kitchen is a fully functioning community kitchen headed by 15 women from the Quereshi Nagar community and has served 4,10,103 meals till date. This kitchen serves meals to communities in Sahyadri Nagar, Panjrapole , Banjar Tanda & Wadar Wasti. The beneficiaries are students from the study center, handicapped people, homeless, unemployed, and daily wage workers. It also supplies food to bal Jeevan - a day care center for underprivileged kids and gharkul – a day care center for specially abled kids.

●The Ulhasnagar community kitchen is driven by transgender and former victims of human trafficking and commercial sex work. It has served 1,33,507 meals till date.
