Right to Food:

Ensuring hunger free society is the first step to any further development.  The programme “Right to food” by HUG intends to serve the underprivileged with “cost free” food to primary school children, disabled and senior citizens and “subsidized” food to other disadvantaged class who earn meagre livelihood.

Mention in the Hindu scriptures on the significance of poor feeding 

Gajaturaga sahasram gokulam bhoomi danam
Kanaka rajatha patram medini sagarantham
Ubhaya kula pavithram koti kanya pradanam
Nabhavatu samatulyam annadana samanah

Hindu scriptures attached much significance to poor feeding saying that whether one donate thousands of horses and elephants, or donate the very land where lord Sri Krishna was borne or donate that many gold & silver bowls that can measure the river Medini or perform the solemnization of millions of marriages, nothing equals to the value of poor feeding.  Thus, the Hindu scriptures  signifies the importance of poor feeding and encourage  all of us to contribute to it as much we can.

It may also make the sufferer take up negative activities and crimes for survival. Hunger may throw a disciplined family on to the roads. Hunger is the cause for several ills in the society and hunger is inhuman and intolerable.
