Speaking to News Karnataka Dasharath K, chairman of NMF said that “NMF is striving to make sure nobody goes to sleep- hungry during a pandemic so we distribute necessaries for poor people. We every day go to different areas and provide vegetables free of cost. We buy 25 tonnes of vegetables daily to distribute among the needy so that they can have nutritious food and boost their immunity. It will be of big help to the local farmers from whom we would be buying the necessities,” he added.

“Our organisation has been working on since the end of April this year to provide nutritious food to the poor people. We have collaborated with Basava Marga Foundation for this cause. We prepare and distribute 500 meals everyday to help the poor and destitute, he explained.
