‘Robin Hood Army’ Collaborates With Restaurants To Feed The Hungry In Delhi

Faces in the Rohingya refugee camp at Kalindi Kunj in Delhi lit up on an otherwise dull Sunday as a group of Robins from Jamia Millia Islamia arrived in the slum to save the day.

However, instead of arches and swords, these Robins were armed with food packets to fight the global enemy: Hunger.

Group of youngsters were members of Robin Hood Army, a volunteer-based organisation that collects surplus food from various restaurants and distributes it to the needy ones.

Founded by Neel Ghose and Anand Sinha, the organisation, which is spread to different parts of the world, aims to tackle two major problems at one go– food crisis among the less fortunate and global food wastage. On its website, the organisation to have helped 5,11,143 people across the world with their army of 3, 446 Robins.

The organisation enjoys support across a wide spectrum of people. From restaurant owners to students, people have gladly joined the ‘Army’ in making efforts to reduce the hunger crisis– one Sunday at a time.

“The fact that Robin Hood Army does not accept any donation in cash appealed to me,” says Inzamam Ul Haq, a post-graduate student in Jamia Millia Islamia and one of the main volunteers of RHA Jamia chapter. “The ground rules were clear. You only distribute food that you could eat yourself. No plate leftovers or inedible food. This enticed me into being a part of the movement.” said Haq.
