Rewarding good deeds with food

Volunteer organisation Youth for Bangladesh operates a food distribution project named ‘Bhalo Kajer Hotel’ on a sidewalk near Inland Container Depot in Dhaka’s Kamalapur to feed the underprivileged people.

  • The disadvantaged people are treated one meal a day with money from a collective fund raised by 265 volunteers.

  • Anyone can receive food in exchange for an act of kindness. The meals are distributed five days a week between 1:30 pm and 3 pm. Evening meals are given out only on Saturdays.

  • ‘Bhalo Kajer Hotel’ has been in operation for a month. So far, the project has fed about 8,000 people.

  • The project feeds about 300 people per day, the majority of whom are underprivileged, during its afternoon operations.

  • The volunteers shop for ingredients, cook and serve the food themselves.

  • Volunteers transport the afternoon meals to the underprivileged people through their project van.

  • Before serving food, the volunteers take a note of the good deeds performed by each individual. Those who fail to meet the expectations are still served food but are urged to improve their actions in the future.

  • Volunteers note down the good deeds done by the visitors at the hotel.
