quickly enough. Feeding India is a team with both the heart and the resources
to do a thorough job on this front; the WedMeGood audience strongly believes in

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
