In India, a country where millions of people go hungry every day, a retired IPS officer has come up with an initiative to feed the needy. The initiative, called ‘Roti Bank’, collects leftovers from restaurants, clubs and parties in Mumbai, stores it in vans and distributes it to the poor before the food gets stale.
