A Bengaluru guy collects leftover food and feed the poor to prevent food wastage

leftover food

We have the right to eat, not to waste.

26-year-old Yuvaraj M is a private firm employee from Chamarajpet, Old Bengaluru area, who collects the leftover food to feed the poor labourers and children. Yuvaraj firmly believes in the concept – ‘we have the right to eat, not to waste’, which motivated him to initiate this great cause.




He is connected through a wide network of people who alert him whenever there’s excess food. Yuvaraj initiated the process 2 years back.

I always felt that food should never be cooked in large quantities and wasted. It’s been about two years and today, the purpose has changed and instead of cutting it short at source, many people choose to offer it to labourers through me, said Yuvaraj.
