Ankit Kawatra of Feeding India is a UN Young Leader

Troubled to see the amount of food being wasted in the big, fat Indian weddings, management graduate Ankit Kawatra came up with the solution to redistribute it among the hungry.

Kawatra, who left his corporate job to start ‘Feeding India’, is among the 17 people selected for the inaugural class of U.N. Young Leaders for Sustainable Development Goals for his initiative.
The young leaders were selected by the U.N. from more than 18,000 nominations from 186 countries.
This led him to establish his own NGO, Feeding India, which now claims to have fed 1 million meals with a network of 2,000 volunteers across 28 cities of India.
They work towards solving hunger and malnutrition in India by redistributing excess food from weddings, corporate, canteens, banquets and households.
