The Roti-Bank is a self-group that is especially dedicated towards feeding the poor and needy people. The members of the group collect the left-over’s from various families and distributes them amongst the poor people.
The group specially targets the parties and events where there is too much wastage of food. They contact the party organizers and ask for the food that is to be garbaged. They collect that food and give to the poor people.
