Burdwan foodies club is a registered trust.we emphasize mainly on social development and a hunger free society.our main initiative is to feed people on a daily basis.we have two projects for that.one is food bank in which we collect left over food from any occasion and share the same with the poor people.the other is feed100 where we feed 100 people daily.but this food offering doesn’t come free of cost.we impose certain conditions for them.they need to learn and study to get food.we also teach them on various subjects.you only get food when you complete your lesson.that is the condition for them.feeding and teaching happen simultaneously.our main objective is not to feed them,but to enable them to earn their livelihood themselves.
- What do we teach ?
- Not the bookish knowledge.but something that will help them to earn their livelihood.
We teach them art work.how to make candles,painting on glasses and walls,how to make ornaments etc.
We have an eye for school level smooth education as well.we have installed sanitary napkin vending machines and water purifiers in various girls schools and primary schools respectively.
We also organise blood donation camps every month.another key work is to maintain a pollution free environment in and around burdwan.we have planted more that 10 thousands trees in last three years and also initiated multiple plogging and cleaning program.
Our aim is to utilise human resources and make a better society to live.
This is us.this is bfc.
Special mention goes to our oxygen bank where we supplied oxygen cylinders to the needy people.we also have our free ambulance.if that is not all,we have done some brave initiative in the recent past.
We arranged the first ever rainbow festival in burdwan,we initiated a campaign where even the widows and the transgender are given the opportunity to indulge in sidur khela on the auspicious occasion of durga pujo.we also initiated a no food waste campaign in burdwan.throuh this we have reduced the food wastage to a lot less number.we have also worked for the acid victims and gave them scholarship for their studies.
In one sentence,we have worked for the betterment of the society without any govt or non govt financial help.and we will continue to do the same even with our limited resources.
