The best things in life are meant to be shared.
A thought that we, at Holachef, closely believe in apart from our love for great food and the desire serve hearty meals to everyone we can reach. All this is possible because of our stellar chefs who are consistently trying to bring the world on your plate.
We felt that while we cater to palates that are forever-evolving in taste and desire, there are some who find happiness and satisfaction in simple, warm, nourishing meals.
When we connected with Robin Hood Army and discovered the amazing work they had been doing with street-dwellers in Mumbai, we knew we wanted to be a part of their wonderful story. The Robin Hood Army is a group of over 500 friends and colleagues who work across India and Pakistan for providing food to the less fortunate. Every night a total of almost 5000 hungry people across 14 cities in India like Delhi, Noida, Mumbai, Bangalore, Jabalpur and more are fed by volunteers of the Robin Hood Army.
Every Sunday, Holachef will be contributing freshly made meals comprising of dal rice / khichdi to the Robin Hood Army for distribution among the less fortunate who have made Mumbai streets their home.
On 26th July 2015, we made our first contribution and it brought smiles to so many faces – it was heartwarming. We would like to think the Robin Hood Army for facilitating this wonderful initiative and each of our patrons for they contribute to this initiative with every order placed on Holachef.
Glimpses from our first distribution:

Originally, surplus food from restaurants is collected by volunteers of Robin Hood Army and distributed among the poor and the hungry. A simple, thoughtful and wonderful concept indeed. They do not accept monetary donations and simply need your time, as they state.
With a goal of eliminating hunger, they are always welcoming of more volunteers, restaurants that want to contribute and residential societies that would like to get involved. Their decentralised model of self-sustenance is quite simple and can be followed easily too.
