Prateek Dwivedi, a Supreme Court lawyer  has taken the initiative to provide cooked meals to Below Poverty Line persons and migrant workers in Noida during COVID-19 lockdown.

The initiative has ensured that maximum people are provided with assistance so that they do not go hungry in these trying times. In the initial days of the lockdown, Dwivedi  had reached out to persons in need of help and handed out food to people near his residence. The distribution was done with the help of police personnel who would inform Dwivedi of a growing need for the same.

Dwivedi  had reached out to a larger number of people in need of food to provide them with cooked meals. He was able to distribute as many as 300 to 600 cooked meals per day.

The ration kits typically contain wheat flour, rice, dal, oil, salt, sugar, and turmeric powder, and is expected to sustain a family for 10 to 14 days. Dwivedi’s initiative reaches out to as many as 500 families daily.

 Dwivedi said, all are sourced mainly from local shops and are paid for from the money raised by the NGO through crowd funding.

Dwivedi said  that while the Noida authorities are doing great work, it is still not possible for them to reach all those in need. This is why civil society needs to come forward with a helping hand.
