Annapurna Feeding Hundreds of Indian Mouths

Our Annapurna initiative is an amalgam of multiple smaller-scale programs that helps us reach out to people who find it tough to acquire even two meals a day. Annapurna initiative has accomplished what most NGO organizations have only half-acted on. COVID Public Feeding program under this initiative led us to feed 3000 people daily with meals in just 35 INR.

The meals provided are from a simple yet staple two-item menu: Rice/Chapati and daal, or khichdi (rice and lentils) and sabzi (vegetable curry)

The name Annapurna comes from Sanskrit, which means the one who gives nourishment and food. Anna (अन्न) means “food” or “grains” and pūrṇa (पूर्ण) means “full, complete and perfect.” However, Annapurna is also Devi Adhishakti, who happens to be the god of food and nourishment.

Food deprivation lowers immunity, making vulnerable populations more susceptible to sickness. Thus, nutrition is, in itself, a form of prevention. SYWA believes in being the giver of food to the under-deprived people of Gujarat, especially children whose parents struggle hard for a living.

Be a part of SYWA’s Annapurna initiative. Join us to be like Devi Annapurna.
