Crowdwave started to distribute hot meals along with water on May 12th 2021 outside government hospitals when the lockdown started. The hospitals have loads of people waiting outside in the heat without any food or water. Crowdwave started there, increased the number of meals being distributed to 1000/ day, also giving it in remote areas to very vulnerable families. We focussed on getting the meals in the hands of frontline workers/ homeless people/ patients and their families outside hospitals/ kids as well as the elderly from poor families. The response to this has been overwhelming and we are looking to continue distributing meals at least for another 2 weeks until this phase of lockdown ends. So far, as on May 23rd - we have distributed 9,800 meals with water.
Our primary goal here is to be able to distribute healthy and nutritious foods to those in need. Going forward our main focus is going to be on the homeless people across Chennai and to those who do not have Ration Cards.
Areas of focus so far:
250 meals outside General Hospital ( Central )
250 meals outside Stanley Hospital ( Mint)
500 Meals to homeless in the following regions:
Please support us so we can continue to feed a 1000 needy people across Chennai everyday.
Number of meals : 1000/ day
Cost: Rs 37/ meal + water
Days : 10 days
Cost : 1000*37*14: Rs 5,18,000
