Formation of Chennai Foodbank
A seed was sown to mark the beginning of Working For A Hunger Free World. A group of young Rajasthanis joined together with a mission to serve the needy. It was this mission that led to the formation of CHENNAI FOODBANK. (A project of RYA Madras Metro Trust) The project was inaugurated with the Blessings of His Holiness Sankaracharya of Kanchipuram.
