Fun

leftovers.org – feeding the poor {{ ideating }}

hi 

I have had this idea for sometime and was wondering if somebody wants todo a pilot …. This is non profit ..

I am wondering what  happens to the left over food ( i dont mean whats in your plate but whats the good food left untouched uneaten ) in our homes and restaurants. 

Homes i guess its either given to servants / watchmen or thrown … 

Restaurants – some say its thrown out or eaten by staff – I dont know … 

I was wondering whether its practicle to target a small area – say south mumbai – people are more affluent so probably more food wastage and many restaurants are also here .. 

So how would it be collect that food and feed the poor ? 

RIO – might be one way of funding it from the restaurants 

Or – you run a campaign to collecting only Rs 10 per person and using that ..

There are lot of supply chain , logistics and cost issues 

But if anyone wants to ADOPT this and run would be great
