In 2020, the long-drawn COVID-19 induced
lockdown created food & health challenges for the populous nation of India, with little regard for status, class or creed. What started out as a small tea & toast outreach to Anand Rishiji hospital inmates by Harjeet, Sunny and their cousin, quickly expanded into a food distribution initiative for city residents, including roadside beggars.
The Ghar Ghar Langar Sewa initiative, born out of a desire to feed people and provide them with resourcesset out to do good deeds in service to God and humanity.
The initiative collated data on food donors and those in need through forms widely circulated on social media and via a phone helpline. A team of 65 volunteers divided distribution, donation collections, cooking, data management, publicity and administrative tasks to ensure daily food delivery within Ahmednagar city for registered individuals in need and impromptu service of others along the way.

Over 11,000 immigrant workers have also been supplied with food and water and many others have benefited from healthcare, transportation and child education schemes.
