In Bangladesh, we throw away an unbelievable amount of perfectly edible food every day. At the same time, a growing number of Bangladeshi find themselves struggling to make ends meet. In the course of a year, around 3.6 million Bangladesh find themselves unable to afford enough food to feed themselves or their families. For more than 1 million of these people, this is not a one-off, but a regular occurrence. The reasons behind this are complicated, but the bottom line isn’t – in short: we throw good food away while people go hungry. That doesn’t make sense.
Food For The Poor is God's instrument to help the materially poor and to renew the poor in spirit.Our team is a reflection of our unconditional love - a love that surrenders all, that inspires trust and faith, and that embraces all people, regardless of race, status or creed.For guidance and to maintain the purity of our mission, we stress the need for regular prayer.Through surrender, service and prayer, we seek a closer union with our Lord.
Since 2006, Ek Taka Ahar Connection has assisted food service companies with the development and implementation of Harvest Programs designed to provide an alternative to discarding surplus food.We have coordinated the donation of over 1 million dollar of quality prepared food from food service providers located in Bangladesh.Our team members have experience with major restaurant dhaka and retailers in operations and food quality. Our entire full time staff of 26 team members is certified in food safety.
Our mission is to help both the materially poor and the poor in spirit.The materially poor are served by local school, clergy and lay leaders who have been empowered and supplied with goods by Food For The Poor.The poor in spirit are renewed by their relationship with and service to the poor through our direct our team of teaching, encouragement and prayer.Ultimately, we seek to bring both benefactors and recipients to a closer union with our Lord.
