Hunger-Free City

According to a news report in DNA,  the Kozhikode city (in Kerala)  corporation  council is joining hands with the government to banish hunger within the remaining days of 2008. The project is called ‘Hunger-Free City’.

The ambitious project aims at providing free daily meal to any hungry soul residing in the city or visiting it. The food will be cooked and served at kitchen counters of  two city hospitals.

The project  is an extension of the Rs 2-a-meal scheme announced by the government in the budget.

It is also said that government plans to replicate the Kozhikode model in case the project gives desired results.

Achieving a hunger-free country would not be a distant dream, if every city finds their own solutions to serve the hungry.
