Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has launched a new app for mobile phones  to ensure easy collection and distribution at the Feed the Need refrigerators,. It allows the users to register as a food donor and offers an option to collect or drop food at the nearest fridge. At present, there are 30 locations where fridges are being operated and they will be on a GIS platform allowing easy locating.

An SMS alert is received by the NGO partners, who arrange for a pick up. Simultaneously, the NGO also has requisitions from various institutions regarding the need for food. The online monitoring of the entire operations is possible to ensure easy collection and distribution through the app.

GHMC Commissioner M Dana Kishore launched the app here on Thursday and said ‘Feed The Need’ initiative was need of the hour and it brings together the needy as well as those who have surplus food.

Mayor Bonthu Rammohan called upon corporate institutions to join hands with the GHMC in establishing more refrigerators to cover the entire GHMC area, said a press release.
