“Tons of good food is wasted every day in Indian events especially in wedding ceremonies. While the hosts and guests have a great time, they often leave behind a lot of excess food, in all wasting upto 40% of food prepared in each function. This food could instead help someone sleeping hungry. It’s about time that India wakes up to wedding without generating waste. Feeding India’s collaboration with WedMeGood is a leap forward towards this important cause of ending hunger, food waste and making weddings sustainable. We’re proud to see an overwhelming response from brides and grooms as well WedMeGood partner caterers who are coming forward to support the cause. In the first few days itself, many hosts across the country have signed up to donate excess food from their weddings. Moving forward, we plan to partner with all WedMeGood partner caterers. I hope that our proud collaboration at WedMeGood sets an example for other countries to follow suit.” – Ankit Kawatra, Founder, Feeding India
