Following the success in Gandhinagar, the Atria Foundation is expanding the initiative with two more mobile food banks set to operate near St Martha’s Hospital on Nrupathunga Road and Gosha Hospital on Venkataswamy Road in Shivajinagar. These new locations will primarily serve the relatives and attendees of hospital patients who often cannot afford lunch.

Atria Foundation detailed the program’s origins during the COVID-19 lockdown, highlighting their rapid scaling from 5,000 to 150,000 meals per day, with support from local hoteliers and the establishment of 20 kitchens in community halls. Atria Group envisions 300 mobile food banks across Bengaluru by the end of 2025. The foundation also redistributes leftover food from establishments like Radisson Blu Hotel to nearby slums.

Local community leaders have praised the initiative for its impact. This noble endeavour is a testament to the power of community collaboration in addressing hunger in Bengaluru.
