Like we did last year during the Covid Lockdown, we try and take these groceries to some of the nomadic tribes (narikuravas) and those who don’t have access to food bcos of loss of livelihoods. These nomadic tribes are the worst hit on all fronts.
This bag with the above organic items Costs Rs1000/- each.
If you want to contribute, pls tell us how many bags you want to support and write to < gopi11545@gmail.com> who will coordinate further. Your contribution will help us reach more people hit by lockdown at least survive hunger and get basic nourishment.
(PS: yes, there is some unavoidable plastic packaging which has been done after lots of thoughts and discussion. Kindly don’t whip us for that.
PS2: These items are all procured from organic farmers and farmer collectives directly at cost and distributed. this way we also ensure fair price and sales to small organic farmers)
