Annadata Safe Food Festival Launched at Veerbhadranagar Housing Society , Baner.

You all are aware that Annadaata is a Citizen Movement for Safe Food. Our aim is “Safe Food, Affordable By One & All”. We go about this purpose through many means. One of them is Safe Food Fests.

Today we launched one such society-level event at Veerbhadranagar Housing Society in Baner, Pune.

The office-bearers of this society met beforehand and agreed with team Annadaata upon the location, time and composition of this Sunday Market. Four ZBNF farmers brought their pesticide-free, naturally-grown farm-produce directly to the doorstep of VBN residents. The farmers were joined by their trusted urban supply chain friends, who actually offloaded some of the unsold items through their sales channels. Incredibly, many farmers exchanged addresses with consumers who wished to visit and spend time at their farms.

No chemicals and no middlemen meant that visitors went home carrying shopping bags loaded with healthy, nutritious food supplies. Farmers and consumers were equally enthused about the few hours they spent together. All are looking forward to more such fests on a more regular basis.

Thanks are due to all volunteers, society office-bearers, visitors and, of course, the farmers. This event was an example of what mutual trust and cooperation can result into.

You too can consider to invite our honest farmer friends over to your society.
