Fridge In Street So Hungry People Can Take Leftovers ...
That is a brilliant idea!
Restaurants waste a lot of food, and even though big companies like Starbucks have recently changed their policies, a lot still goes into the bin when it could, well, go into people’s bellies.
So, when a restaurant owner in Kochi, India, saw a homeless woman eating from a trash can, she knew she had to do something.
So, Minu Pauline came up with a brilliant idea.
Realizing that her restaurant, Pappadavada, had a lot of leftover food, she decided to put a fridge outside so homeless people could help themselves.
It’s open 24/7 and anybody is free to use it.
The fridge receives regular donations from restaurant patrons and other people, and Pauline herself leaves around 75-80 portions of food per day.
“Money is yours,” she told The Huffington Post.
“But resources belong to society.
That’s the message I want to send out.
If you're wasting your money…
you’re wasting society’s resources.”
