A 23-year-old in India looks to solve hunger problem with her charity

Sneha Mohandos is the 23-year-old founder of the Food Bank of Chennai.

She’s only 23 years old, but has big dreams to fight hunger.

Sneha Mohandos of Chennai, India, — located on the eastern end on the Bay of Bengal — wanted to do something to help people in her town. She noticed that of the area is poverty-stricken and decided to start her own charity called The Food Bank.

This charity looks to ensure that those in need will have something to eat. Then, those who cook reach out to her via Facebook or Whatsapp when the food is ready to be distributed. Volunteers pick up the food and hand it to those living on the street.

“I started the group on Facebook because most of the people spend their time there and many of them might be interested in this but they just need a connecting point,” Mohandos told Icy Tales.

The Food Bank first started in June, and within one month, volunteers were distributing 55 containers of food a day to the needy.

“In the next few years I wish to see every street dweller sleep in peace having had their three meals for the day,” Mohandos told Icy Tales.


A group walks down the streets of Chennai with packets in their hands. They seem to be looking for someone. Soon, they begin to talk to people in the lanes. The people they talk to are homeless and hungry. The group distributes the packets and the hungry eat, satisfied.

A dark-haired, tall woman from the group, Sneha Mohandoss, who has been handing out the packets of food, smiles happily as she looks on. And she has every reason to. A woman on a mission, at 23, she is determined to eradicate hunger in India and she has begun her project, a food drive called ‘Food Bank’, in her hometown, Chennai.

The concept behind Food Bank is simple — when you cook for your family, cook extra for the poor and the homeless. Pack the food and inform Sneha through WhatsApp or Facebook. Volunteers collect the packets from you and distribute them.

The idea came to Sneha when she was on Facebook, early, this June. “I am extremely active on social media, especially Facebook. One day, I realised that I could use social media to do something that could help people in need, as opposed to merely whiling away my time. I grew up watching my grandparents give fresh, home-cooked meals to the poor. During my school days, I used to visit the Sai Baba Temple every Thursday and give food to the poor, there. I also realised that there were many people like me looking to feed the poor, but no one had any idea where to come together or whom to contact. So, I started a group on Facebook, and voila, Food Bank was born,” she explains. “We believe in giving home-cooked food for the homeless. When we help someone, we have to give it our all and serve them nothing but the best. No halfway measures, here.”

Today, Food Bank has 8,000 Facebook members. Sneha has Whatsapp groups for each area and there are volunteers who go around collecting food in their respective areas. Members distribute around 150 to 200 packets everyday.

“Once word got around about what I was doing, I began receiving calls from people in Goa, Faridabad, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and other places, asking me about how they could set up food banks too,” she says. “Now, four months after we got started, we have 8,000 members and counting. Hopefully, other cities too will see enthusiastic volunteers, raring to go to help those in need!”
