SWAD BHARATI

Pen was developing small town, especially because of Educational institutes that were set up and students from various cities and small towns were migrated here. Understanding the students need for Homely food, we initiated "Swad Bharati" in the year 1999.

By mobilizing resources we set up a common kitchen where in a group of women were employed. From the year 1999 to 2002 approx 100 students were benefited from the subsidized Tiffin Service of "Swad Bharati". Uncertain experience of the Tiffin Service for Students compelled us to shut down the venture for students. But it was a Satisfactory Experience for our Team to Feed the Students coming from faraway places.

In The year 2003 Ahilya Mahila Mandal Initiated 'Sanjeevan Ashram' with 4 Elders and Today in 2010 we have 44 Elders and the food is prepared by 'Swad Bharati' also since year 2008 'Anandi Vasti Gruh' was started, for which the meal is prepared by the same unit.

Similarly catering orders at subsidized rates are taken for the religious functions in the vicinity.

From June-2003 to March-2010, 'Swad Bharati' was also providing the Mid Day meal for nearby school where in Meal was prepared for 2500 students and 10 women were employed.

Similarly on an average 'Swad Bharati' gets sufficient order to keep the women associates busy across the year and this venture is now one of the most successful.
