Ever heard of a professionally trained chef who dedicates his life feeding only the poor? Only Krishnan does this. He does not do this in the swanky confines of a 5-star hotel., but in roaming the streets helping the needy.
Starting in 2002, utilizing his own personal savings, Narayanan Krishnan fed around 30 people. In 2003, he began to serve freshly-cooked meals, and has since served over 1,900,000 till date.
Every day, he wakes up at 4 am, cooks a simple hot meal and then, along with his team, loads it in a van and travels about 200 km feeding the homeless in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.
Krishnan feeds, often with his hands, almost 400 destitute people every day. And for those who need it, he provides a free haircut too. He was selected as one of the Top 10 in “CNN heroes 2010” list.
THE DEFINING MOMENT!
According to CNN, 8 years ago, this award-winning chef with a five-star hotel chain was all set to go to Switzerland for a high-profile posting. On a visit to a Madurai temple, he came across a homeless, old man eating his own human waste. That stark sight changed Krishnan’s life.

A famous part of the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Creed says, ‘Service to Humanity is the best work of life’. Luckily, a good friend of mine Ebuka Obi does same with his We Care Foundation. See some pictures below.
