Ration Chachi’s ‘Moving Kitchen’ Feeds 100 Hungry Kids in Uttar Pradesh Daily

Using earnings from her ration shop, Bipin Devi and her husband Kallu Yadav have been feeding the poor in the villages of Sonbhadra district in Uttar Pradesh for the past two years.

Ration Chachi’s ‘Moving Kitchen’ Feeds 100 Hungry Kids in Uttar Pradesh Daily

In many villages in the Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh, having a single meal a day is considered a luxury, as starvation and food scarcity has been gripping these villages for so long.

But for the past two years, Bipin Devi and her family have been trying their best to feed the hungry kids in these villages by running an on-the-move-kitchen — Chachi ki Rasoi.

Bipin Devi and her husband Kallu Yadav run a ration shop in the Rajpur village of Sonbhadra district. They use most of their earnings to feed poor families, especially the children of the villages who often sleep hungry.

The excitement of the children while seeing their vehicle is unexplainable, says Bipin Devi who is fondly called ‘Chachi’.

“I started this almost two years ago during the pandemic when the villagers were left helpless without jobs and starving. The least I could do was to feed the hungry. Ever since I have been feeding people every day,” says Bipin Devi.

She cooks the food at her ration shop and distributes food in at least six to seven nearby villages in the Sonbhadra district.

Today, she feeds around 80 to 100 people every day.
