There’s been a lot of talk lately about restaurants and supermarkets that donate their unused food at the end of the day, but one spot has taken it a beautiful step further.
Pappadavada, a restaurant in the Indian city Kochi, has embraced an open-door policy to help feed the hungry. They have placed a community refrigerator in front of the restaurant filled with leftover food. Hungry people can pass by and grab anything they want from the fridge for free, no questions asked.
This program not only helps to feed the needy, but also helps eliminate food waste. The fridge contains leftovers from the restaurant but also those who have made donations, and everything is clearly labeled with a date to ensure freshness and safe food.
