Ration Distribution Drive

Ration Distribution Drive

YOLO in collaboration with the Akshaya Patra Foundation is conducting Ration Distribution drives in 10 cities of India in this pandemic, where more than 50K+ people are being fed under this initiative. We have over 7000+ kits being distributed in different areas of the cities that have been identified by us. For our ration drives, each food kit has wheat flour, rice, sugar, vegetable oil, chilly powder, salt, turmeric, dhania powder, dal, and chana. However, because of the diversity in our country's food patterns, we are taking special care to include food ingredients that are key to people's everyday diets in a particular geographical location.

How Are We Doing It?

Our team of volunteers in all districts of India is playing a major role in this distribution. We have identified beneficiaries of these drives through our pan India network of Facebook- My Pincode groups. These groups having membership of 3.5 lakh+ members, have been instrumental in fulfilling the ration requests that were posted in various such groups. Additionally, we have ensured that prior surveys are conducted in these cities to identify areas and people who are in most need.

Community managers of YOLO are playing a significant role in ensuring this and making the Ration Drives a success, facilitating, managing and helping our efforts to fruition. We are taking utmost care to ensure all necessary safety protocols, which are a must during this troubling time of the pandemic, are followed. These are uncertain times, and we are being careful that beneficiaries maintain proper social distancing while standing in ques to collect the kits. What has made this process smoother and effective, is the continuous support that we receive from the local police and district administration, who help ensure that proper measures are taken in maintaining social distancing.
