Meals for the hungry

Meals for the hungry

When you see a hungry man, the least that you can do is to give him food. Narayanan Krishnan, an award-winning chef, didn’t just see a hungry man; he witnessed the worst thing a man can do when he’s starving: eating his own human waste.

Krishnan narrated a story that changed his life. When he was visiting a temple in the South Indian City of Mandurai way back in 2002, he saw a man under the bridge eating his own human waste. Shocked by what he saw, the five-star hotel chef immediately feed the man and suddenly realized his calling of feeding the hungry. Krishnan established a non-profit organization Akshaya Trust in 2003 that aims to feed the elderly and homeless, and underprivileged people of India. The 29-year old chef took the responsibility under his care, realizing how a number of people suffer from poverty. He used his skill to begin an advocacy that will lift the spirits of people who are in need; because he believes that you should maximize your effort on what you can give. Together with his team, Krishnan reaches out to the homeless and elderly and distributes the food they prepare daily.

This heroic act inspires us to give without expecting in return. Those who are fortunate to live a comfortable life may stop and think about the situation of those who aren’t privileged enough to have a decent kind of life. It’s even bothering to think that some people were driven by poverty to do unnecessary things in order to earn a penny. Non-profit organizations are just around, take time and see what you can contribute.
