Hunger is more than missing a meal

Hunger is a crisis that has almost a billion people in its grip

Serve the hungry citizen

The Problem

The challenge is not a lack of food — it is making food consistently available to everyone who needs it.

Hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, malaria and terrorism combined

Every 10 seconds, a child dies from hunger

82% of hungry people live in countries with food surpluses, not food shortages

One in every eight people sleeps hungry each night

One-third of the food produced around the world is never consumed

850 million hungry people in the world

The Idea

Who we are?

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.

Our vision

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 those who need it most.

What We've Been Up To

Our Journey

On the army’s first night of distribution, we realized that helping the less fortunate may feel good personally, but feeding 50 odd people at night, once a week would not create any real difference in a country where millions are starving.

Hunger is an acute problem. We needed to reach out to more people, more restaurants, and more cities - our deadline being yesterday.

  • 2014
    200 Robins 8 Cities

    Modeled on Portugal's Re-Food Program, the Robin Hood project starts in Delhi, India in August 2014.
