ISKCON Food Relief Foundation (IFRF) provides midday meals to 250,000 children of more than 2,000 government schools in the four districts of Haryana- Gurugram, Palwal, Kurukshetra and Faridabad. The main objective of IFRF is to provide healthy and nutritious food to the children which helps them in physical and mental development.
On 11th May, BJP Spokesperson (Haryana), Mr. Raman Malik visited the Gurugram Kitchen along with his wife, son and daughter. IFRF-Vice Chairman (North India Chapter), Mr. Dhananjay Krishna Das, Mr. Rahul Saxena (Manager of Gurugram Kitchen) and Mr. Ramatma Das (Promotion) welcomed and gave them a complete kitchen tour. On observing the mid-day meals being prepared using the modern techniques, Mr. Raman Malik said, “IFRF is doing a great selfless work in the social sector. On one hand, many children don’t get enough food and on the other there are children who rely on the midday meal provided in school for their physical and mental growth. The Lord is pleased with such humane service and I hope IFRF continues to serve him with this beautiful feeling.” He was amazed by seeing 20,000 chapatis being made in one hour. On observing the unmatched modern infrastructure of the kitchen, he described ISKCON Food Relief Foundation as the excellent example of the welfare of society.
