Public Fridge for the Homeless

Wow! this truly is about sharing.

Cup of Good

How many times have you left a restaurant with a to-go box, only to toss it in the trash a few days later? In Kochi, India, you can share your leftovers with the homeless population by leaving it in an outdoor fridge!

Minu Pauline, restaurant owner of Pappadavada, came up with this solution to help the less fortunate folks in her city: She covers the cost of the fridge and electricity while she, along with the community, do their part to donate excess food that they are going to throw out anyway.

I just love this. When I first arrived in the United States, one of the first things I noticed were the large portions, so there is always an abundance of wasted food. I know some companies are already donating their unsold goods to food banks, but, as Minu shows, you don’t have to be a giant corporation to make a difference in people’s lives. What an inspiration!
