Is it possible to provide a healthy meal at Rs.5/- around 10 cents ?

Today we see lot of food wastage all around the world. At one end we see tons of food is wasted & at other we see millions of people sleep everyday without a good healthy meal. Can we bridge this huge gap ?

We are mass producing thousands of products to make them accessible to millions of people. why can't we do that in food sector , bring down the price & let it be available to needy hungry people all over the world ?

  • Apr 4 2013: Jayprakash I admire what you are trying to do. My limited knowledge is about the food banks in America. Problems are becoming worse now. One blessing is the food lunch progam which was implemented at the behest of the military. If you don't feed a kid, he'll never be a good soldier or sailor.

      Apr 5 2013: Yes! Proper food is very much an essential part of any human being ! and if some portions of global population is deprived of that then it affects whole society. "If you don't feed a kid, he'll never be a good soldier or sailor. " Also he might not be a good human being - which is not good for other fellow human beings.

      I still remember reading about an experiment where a couple of dears were transported on a remote island. The number grew. Food for all of them was enough but as their population breached the holding capacity of island, food became scarce and their social structure started crumbling. There were more fights, more stress....

      I think we should learn from this experiment & start taking steps before it is too late.
