Baselius college offers food packets for the needy in Kottayam town
Kottayam: No one will have to skip their lunch when they reach Kottayam town. Baselius college here is all set to give food packets at the town centre. The food will be distributed by means of an unused ATM counter.
A group of students and teachers at the Baselius college has joined hands for this initiative via a programme called ‘Niravu’. The programme intends to distribute at least 40 packets initially. If the demand increases, the plan is to increase the arrangements accordingly.
The meals are packed as vegetarian and non-vegetarian food separately. The counter will function from 11.30 in the morning to 1.30 at noon, on working days. The distribution is taken up by the college students.
“If there are extra packets, those will be distributed at places like hospitals,” explained the volunteers of the programme.
