A restaurant in India is encouraging customers and the community to leave their leftover food in a fridge for those in need of a meal usually the homeless.
Pappadavada, which serves Kerala food in Kochi, a port city on the southwestern coast of India, names the fridge installed outside the eatery "Tree of Goodness."
Without being questioned, the hungry can open the fridge, which stays unlocked. But donors need to make sure that the food is fresh and packed properly, according to a report by Indian media outlet Deccan Chronicle
Minu Pauline, who runs Pappadavada, said she came up with the idea after seeing a lady searching for food in a trash bin one night.
Pauline was saddened because that particular night, her restaurant had made enough food that they could have easily given the woman, the Huffington Post quoted the owner as saying.
The move of kindness is commended by the local community as it is also an effective way to reduce food wastage.
