giving back

Holy Cow! tries to earn the halo on our logo by giving back as much as we can. That’s why we sponsor free school meals in India, so for every pack of curry sauce sold, we sponsor a free school meal!

A school meal is something that most of us take for granted for our children. But for India’s urban poor, a regular free school meal means they are more likely to be enrolled in school, rather than to being sent to work. A free school meal also means that children are then more likely to stay in school, receive an education and have better job prospects at the end of it. Case studies have shown than not only does the child benefit greatly, but their families can be pulled out of the poverty cycle in the long run. Win win! So every pack you buy, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that a free school meal will have lasting impact on the lives of India’s urban poor.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS IN ACTION

Aashish is a grade six student at Vadalipura Prathmik (Primary) School in Vadodara, Gujarat. His father is a farm labourer and struggles to earn enough money to feed his family. As Aashish comes from a family unable to meet his nutritional needs due to their financial situation, he would normally have to go out to work in exchange for food. However, thanks to your purchases of Holy Cow! Curry Sauces in the UK , Aashish and his fellow pupils all receive a hot, nourishing and life changing school lunch every day through our Food For Thought Programme.
