Through this activity we provide one time free meal to the needy members of marginal land holders and landless labourers in the drought affected villages. The meals are served 25 days in a month. At least one member from beneficiary family opted to perform Shramdan (voluntary contribution) for 5 days in a month. Through this Shramdan sustainable water shed work is undertaken. During this draught period, in 11 villages Community Kitchen Activities has been successfully completed. 299,465 free meals have been served. And 4733 people get benefited through this activity. 26939 man-days have been generated through shramdaan.
This activity is initiated for restricting the rain water to a particular land area thereby maintaining the water holding capacity of the land. This activity not only prevents water to flow away from the particular land area, but also prevents soil erosion. We are aiming to achieve the target of 5000 acres in 25 villages.
