Coimbatore: For 60-year-old G Bala Mohan, a retired TNSTCemployee, every Sunday is special. On this day, he cooks and distributes 50 packets of food among people living on the streets. He has been doing this for the past 2 years.
“My entire family is contributing to this effort. I was moved by a sermon on hunger and feeding the poor two years ago. Since then, we have been donating home-cooked food every Sunday,” he said.
“Every Sunday my family wakes up at 5am and we purchase 6kgs of 14 varieties of vegetables. These vegetables are cooked with dal and rice which is later packed. I go around the city and donate it to at least 50 people,” said Bala Mohan.
