The Robin Hood Army is a volunteer based, zero-funds organization that works to get surplus food from restaurants and the community to serve less fortunate people.
Our local chapters are run by friends and colleagues, who hope to create a difference in their own unique way. For example, restaurants in the neighbourhood Green Park, will contribute to the homeless of the locality, through volunteers who live in Green Park. Our “Robins” are largely students and young working professionals – everyone does this in their free time. The lesser fortunate sections of society we serve include homeless families, orphanages, patients from public hospitals, and old age homes.
Simple really, beat global hunger and bring out the best of humanity using food as a medium.
The idea is to create self-sustained chapters across the world who will look after their local community. And in the process, inspire people around us to give back to this who need it most.
Modeled on Portugal's Re-Food Program, the Robin Hood project starts in Delhi, India in August 2014.
Through social media, some passionate new recruits, and a healthy seasoning of luck, the RHA expands across Indian cities and in a landmark move into neighbouring Pakistan.
The RHA expands its base across international borders, and sets up the Robin Hood Academy — a feeder program where Robins teach and enable hundreds of street children to pursue primary education.
The RHA undertakes its most ambitious project — #Mission1Million and successfully mobilizes media houses, corporates, and artists, to unite Indians and Pakistanis to serve 1.32 million less fortunate citizens on both sides of the border on Independence Day.
With over 9 million people served — the army streamlines its processes to set up hyperlocal community chapters across the world. Our focus is to become a global engine which brings out the best of humanity using food as a medium. Watch this space for more.
