Our flagship program, Brahmbhog was initiated in 1996 to alleviate hunger. A base has been built in one of the lesser developed sections of Ludhiana town to serve the mid-day meal to the weaker sections of the population. While providing food, an effort is also made to instill hygienic habits by insisting that all guests first should cut their nails and wash their hands with clean water before taking their meals. While waiting for their turn, a social worker employed by the Trust educates them about healthy habits and various issues concerning their social lives and the community at large. In the neat and clean dining hall the guests are seated on tables and are served very respectfully. They are served as much as they want to eat, with the only one condition – that they do not waste even one bite. The BrahmBhog program has been extended to feed children in the nearby schools, so that they do not skip their classes for want of a meal. Food trucks are also sent to NGO’s and distant slums where food is served to the less fortunate/physically challenged. Preparations are on to extend this program to reach as many people possible in the coming years.
