Robin Hood Army is a zero-funds, volunteer-based organisation that collects surplus food from restaurants, weddings and events. They then package and distribute the food to the underprivileged. Currently, Robin Hood Army is present in 10 countries and 103 cities across India.

What is the business model of RHA?
RHA follows a de-centralised model, where the volunteers in every city are in-charge of tying up with restaurants and scouting for locations to distribute the food. There are no monetary funds involved. Hence the only thing required from the volunteers is time.
The mission 30M stands for feeding 30 million people across India from 1st July ’20 to 15th August ’20. Thus, the aim is to help people who have lost livelihoods and family members due to the pandemic. Over the last six years, Robin Hood Army has become one of the largest community initiatives in the world.
