SAVE FOOD SAVE LIFE CAMPAIGN
Save Food, Save Life is an awareness campaign that is organized for the purpose to spread awareness about food wastage and the importance of saving food among students. It is reported that the world overall wastes about 1.3 billion tonnes of food a year, while Indians, too, waste as much food as the whole of the UK consumes. If each one of the 7 billion folks on this planet chooses to eat mindfully, not goaded or driven by greed or want, we would have sufficient food for the starving millions, too.
This awareness campaign was done in collaboration with Dwaraka Doss Goverdhan Doss Vaishnav College (Arumbakkam) with the Department of Bachelor of Business Administration. The students will be showing their support to our campaign by giving handprints to the save food save life support board. The students showed greater interest in the campaign. Overall 250 students from various departments participated in the campaign and 128 students enrolled as volunteers for the Neighbourhood Foundation.
