Special Announcement Mealpax 2.0 FEED THE ONE IN NEED Mealpax was a campaign born out of necessity amidst the pandemic. Rotaract Bangalore south parade along with kriya foundation partnered with a local restaurant to bring meals to people unable to afford them like migrant workers, homeless and underprivileged kids. It was our effort to help as many people as we could. We started the fundraising campaign on 30th May, 2021 and started distributing meals on 1st June, 2021. We received immense support and encouragement from our fellow Rotaractors and members alike. We successfully raised over Rs. 90,000 which helped us run the campaign effectively and we managed to serve over 3500 meals over the course of 2 weeks. Mealpax is the project that became near and dear to our heart and the smiles on the kids' faces was beyond inexplicable, which inspired us to turn this into our flagship project and MEALPAX 2.0 was born. “Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life? There is no deficit in human resources. The deficit is in human will.” — Martin Luther King Jr. Mealpax 2.0 is an ambitious project. We are trying to be bigger and better than what we did last year and help families in need. So instead of a packed meal we are donating 2 WEEKS WORTH OF RATION to help sustain the families in these tough and unpredictable times. All it takes is Rs.850 to feed a family of four for 2 weeks. We are trying to start this rota-year with our best foot forward and be the best of humanity. JOIN US !!
