Dabbawalas of Mumbai are known for running a unique logistics system of delivering home cooked food to their customers. Recently, they have taken another initiative by launching their Share a Dabba campaign. The initiative is a non-profit collaboration between Happy Life Welfare Society and The Dabbawala Foundation.
Share My Dabba seeks to make use of the left over food in the dabbas by giving them to the thousands of hungry street children, using a small Share Sticker and the dabbawala network.
Every day, 200 thousand children on Mumbai’s streets are hungry and every day 2 of them die of hunger. The Mumbai Dabbawala’s deliver 120 tons of food everyday out of which 16 tons is left uneaten. So that a lot of food is utilized in the right way.
