The popular “Rs.5 Meal Program” initiated by the Hare Krishna Movement (HKM), Hyderabad has crossed an important milestone with the total number of centers operating under the program reaching 50.
Implemented in collaboration with the GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation), the scheme provides subsidized meals for underprivileged residents and migrants on a daily basis in different locations of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. The meal served for Rs. 5 consists of rice, sambar, pickle and a vegetable curry. At present, about 12,000 people are fed every day. There are specialized kiosks across the city distributing the meals.
