Army of women cooks puts heart into Valentine’s Day
« on: February 15, 2016, 12:57:25 AM »
Mumbai: A group of women with a flair for cooking is showing how spending a few hours on a single day to do voluntary work can alleviate the hunger of the most needy segments of society.
This Sunday, the team which calls itself the Food Army will celebrate Valentine's Day as Annapurna Din. It has organised one of the biggest food donation drives in the country. No financial donation is involved at all. Residents of various cities have been told to cook regional specialities which will be distributed to underprivileged children in their neighbourhood.
For instance, residents of Mumbai and Gujarat can donate 25 homemade theplas and six cupcakes. People in Chennai can contribute idli chutney to their local collection centre, while natives in Rajasthan can prepare baati and churma. Punjabis can distribute parathas, while residents of Madhya Pradesh can arrange for savouries and methi pudi.
Apart from Mumbai, Annapurna Din will be celebrated in New Delhi, Vadodara, Rajkot, Hyderabad, Nashik, Pune and Ahmedabad.
In Mumbai, the drive begins at the Ramakrishna Mission (RKM), Khar, on Saturday. "We have set up 35 collection centres in the city where people can donate the food items on February 13. The following morning, on Valentine's Day, they can join us for the distribution drive at RKM. Various teams will fan out to localities where street children live," said baker Rintu Rathod, who is at the helm of this initiative.
The core team, based in Santacruz, includes Vinita Hurkat, Shefali Thaker, Neetu Singh, Sunita Hurkat and Dr Krishna Desai. Over a hundred volunteers have taken part in various projects from time-to-time.
