    This fundraiser will benefit

    Biprajit Dutta

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

My mother, Mrs. Kolika Dutta, and I had started a free kitchen for financially challenged COVID patients and underprivileged people. On May 20th, we started by delivering 25 fish meals to an initiative called Himu-r HeNshel - organised by Ms. Kinkini Sengupta, Mr. Abhijit Das, etc. They deliver the meals to destitute street children and the homeless people of the city.

In two days we were requested by Ms. Smritiparna Sengupta, on behalf of Jabala Action Research Organisation to provide food for 20 children around the Kolabagan area who have been affected by COVID and the lockdown. Their parents are out of jobs and they need nutrition.  

[EDIT: We have stopped providing free meals to this organisation as they had failed to provide us with dependable proof of disbursement of free meals to the truly needy.]
From today onwards we shall be providing 30 more meals to Amader Padakhep, as requested by Ms Mala Goswami, Secretary of the organisation. They run 2 homes for destitute children in Baghajatin - one for boys and another for girls. They are also providing support for financially challenged COVID and non-COVID patients.

We provide fish meals and egg meals where we include different vegetables, soya chunks, etc. along with sizable fish and egg portions to make a wholesome single serving meal. We also provide curd along with it. The cost of this whole meal comes to around 50 rupees per meal.

We have been asked for the organisations to try and provide free meals at least for the coming month, considering the COVID scenario and financial crises. Currently we are providing 45 free meals per day. 

Under the current circumstances of the terrible havoc wreaked by Cyclone Yaas in West Bengal, we are also trying to support the hapless people affected by the cyclone and flood. We shall be travelling to some of the affected areas with dry food and water support. 

We seek your financial support in this humble endeavour of ours such that we can continue to serve the people in need in this hour of tremendous crisis. We need financial support to procure the materials for the food. We are also accepting raw materials if anyone may choose to support us that way.

Food for one, food for all.

Thanks and regards,

Biprajit Dutta
On behalf of Ruchira Kitchens
