Distributed 126 tons relief farm kits during COVID 19 pandemic. Small Farmers are the backbone of our country.  We stand together in support of farmers everywhere.  Today they need our help.

How does it work?
#FarmToFeed fights for two causes with one action. Save a struggling farmer and feed a family in need with one small act of kindness. Help break the vicious cycle of ample harvest + no demand + loans.
The @farmtotable_relieffund purchases food kits directly from small farmers and distributes them to at-risk communities. 1 kit of INR 650 feeds a family of 4 for 2 weeks.  Head to the link in bio and be a part of the change. A simple action can go a long way.
