Taking a step towards satiating the hunger of the needy and destitute, Believers Eastern Church Diocese of Kolkata organized food distributions at different places on 16 October 2021, on the occasion of World Food Day.
A team from the diocese, led by H.G. Justin Mor Thomas Episcopa, went and distributed meals to the poorest families staying near a railway station in North 24 Parganas District. These families have migrated from different parts of India and Bangladesh and now settled here in search of jobs. H.G. Justin Mor Thomas Episcopa and his team distributed food packets to 40 people at this place.
Local parishes in Bardhaman and Hooghly District prepared fresh meals and served to the poor and hungry on this day.
A parish located in the Islands of West Bengal distributed food packets among beggars at a railway station.
Dry ration kits were distributed to 10 needy mothers by another parish. Each kit contained 2 kg rice, 1 kg potatoes, 250 grams each of dal and onion.
In observance of this day, one of the parishes in the islands provided 40 children with snacks and fruits.
Sumitra Giri, 53 years old, a resident of one of the islands in West Bengal said, “God blessed me with dry ration kit during today’s World Food Day program. I am grateful to Believers Eastern Church for thinking about poor people like me and providing us with ration kits.”
