THE STORY BEHIND ROTI BANK

Rotibank Now is a Partner of IFRA(Indian Food Recovery alliance)

Roti Bank is an initiative started in the Azadpur Sabzi Mandi by Rajkumar Bhatia, Sudhir Behrani and Sonik Sidana on 20th June 2015. Here, a couple of rotis with dry pickle can be deposited for the needy to have. Much easier than one person providing adozen rotis once a week, Roti bank aims to work in a regular basis.

It started when a man visited for employment. There was no empty slot and thus, he was denied. However, on seeing the woeful condition of the man, some money was offered to him. The man, though grateful said that it was it was roti that filled the empty stomach.

The idea struck. Everyone has heard of Eye Bank, Blood Bank, Money Bank and what not. But what we needed was, Roti Bank. So that no one stayed hungry. To kill the devil of hunger. To avoid thefts and misacts .

An empty stomach fails to look for God . And what greater God is than food itself.

The aim to promote Roti Bank is not to indicate that food will be given to all, even with no efforts. It is the one actually, to help the needy and the ones whom the lady luck hasn't favoured enough.

There are many children today, who study and work and still aren't able to receive a proper square meal.A little effort of ours to help the needy, can abolish the evil of hunger.

We aim to balance. We aim to help. We aim to end hunger.
