The network is modeled after the World Food Bank which supports a chain of NGOs in 21 countries and feeds around 41 million people each year. Such efforts are critical because hundreds of tones of food is wasted in cities such as New Delhi in the developing world, because they lack efficient food storage and distribution infrastructure. Additional food banks will be setup in other cities in India in the future.
