The food for this purpose is prepared in the temple Anna Chatram. Identifying the needy is a real time constrain. Students find difficulty during distribution as the food packets are demanded by people who actually don’t need it. (ex. auto drivers , rickshaw pullers), in spite of such difficulties the students take full effort to reach the real destitute who are in the road sides. Precautionary observations are made in identifying the needy. In a week approximately 85 food packets are distributed.
