What we do –  Serving to create a better future for Children Across India

Started in 2011, Our Food for Education initiative touches the lives of over 17,000 children in schools across the age group of 6-14 years in India every day.

This is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2 to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition.   We work to end hunger and work to ensure all vulnerable children have access safe, nutritious and sufficient food every day with education.  We work to end all forms of malnutrition to reduce stunting and wasting of children.

Through the years, we have fed over 20 million meals to over 17,000 children in need, starting from one feeding center in Delhi to over 70 centers across 12 States in India. These centers are mainly non-formal educational setups where we connect freshly cooked meals to children every day with the objective of bettering their health, education and safety. Our work revolves around achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of Zero Hunger that can positively impact our present and future generations.

Responsenet along with over 230 private sector partners are significantly improving the nutrition and literacy levels of poor vulnerable children in rural and urban communities across India. Our holistic approach helps create the opportunity for children to learn, play and thrive who would otherwise be deprived  and to create the freedom for the most vulnerable children to aspire as far as their dreams can take them for a better future

Our programs are permissible Activities which may be included in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as per Section 135, Schedule VII.

Impact Statement

Delhi FoodBank focusses on children up to school going ages attending nonformal schools across India with the objective to better their health, education, and safety.

At responsenet, we believe that collective abilities can make a lasting difference to the lives of millions with the right partnerships for community-centric interventions. A focus we have in all the work we do is the mission to work closely with those in need and our partners to create a lasting impact on the lives we can touch every day. We work across India in our projects and help create, promote and supplement partnerships to better lives every day.

Started in 2007 out of the needs for accelerating innovative solutions, we are working to address the most pressing challenges affecting communities every day with innovation, technology, and partnerships.

We partner with government, companies, individuals and NGO partners providing end to end implementation of projects. We work closely with partners to achieve this goal and serve communities within India through various CSR program implementations.

Our strong teams have diverse skill-sets with experience across the development and private sector with a passion to design, implement and work for community-centric implementations with creativity to implement solutions for diverse geographies and stakeholders across India for a better tomorrow for those we work for.

One core challenge we have taken up in mission mode at Responsenet is the need to fight hunger especially of vulnerable children for whom we connect fresh meals. We serve those who need these meals the most every day to help realize their potential and focus on child protection. This has the highest potential to create an impact on the lives of children and help them stay healthy, learn and stay in schools to realize their potential. With the fundamental thought that a “Hungry Child Can Not Learn”, We help ensure they are not out of schools and
learning safely every day.

We feed meals daily across India in Jharkhand, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Chandigarh, Kerala, Assam, Jharkhand Maharashtra, Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh among other states with the aim to transform lives with the foundation to provide access for the most basic need of food for children in need to help them chose and realize a better future.
