Prem Rawat inaugurated the first "Food for People" facility in a tribal area in northeastern India. The opening of this facility, funded by The Prem Rawat Foundation, marks the launch of an innovative model of food aid established by the Foundation in response to Prem Rawat’s vision to help people most in need. The opening of the first "Food for People" marks the launch of an innovative model of food aid by the The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), developed and operated in consultation with local village elders. With support from Premsagar Foundation, a six-acre plot of land was purchased, and a well-equipped facility was built. Fifty villagers were then trained to operate the facility to the highest sanitary and nutritional standards.
Dr. Kamal Chand Singhal, representing the World Health organization at the inauguration, said: "This valiant effort directly supports the efforts of the World Health organization. The healthy food and clean water provided each day by Prem Rawat’s Foundation at this impressive facility will help many children and adults in Jharkhand become less vulnerable to disease and death, and go on to live healthy lives. This is a noble and generous initiative, for which Prem Rawat and his Foundation need to be acknowledged and wholeheartedly thanked."
