We serve 300 free hot meals every evening for the poor and handicapped. To date we have given a total of 87,000 meals. Our kitchen is located at the Vedathanam Home at Triveni Ghat in Rishikesh town. The meals are simple, yet nutritious and delicious. We have three basic meals:
1) rice and dhal (lentils or beans);
2) chapatti with sabji (flat wheat bread with vegetables); and
3) pulao (fried rice with vegetables and raita, a yoghurt preparation).
In emergency situations the team works double hard, preparing extra food and opening other feeding stations where the need is greatest.
The cooks and their assistants serve the meals themselves.
