*There is no deadline for this project. It is recurring.
The Robin Hood Army is a volunteer-based organization that works to get surplus food from restaurants across to the less fortunate people.
Our local chapters are run by friends and colleagues who hope to create a difference in their own small way. For example, restaurants in Green Park, Delhi will contribute to the homeless of the locality via volunteers who live in Green Park. Our volunteers are largely students and young working professionals. The lesser fortunate sections we help include homeless families, night shelters, orphanages, and patients from public hospitals. The RHA is a very decentralized organization and does not accept monetary contributions- we just need your time.
Their vision is simple really. It is to “eliminate hunger and food wastage globally.” The idea is to create self-sustained chapters who will look after their local community. And in the process, inspire people around us to give back to those who need it most.
Stepping In As A Volunteer
Volunteering is easy to begin. They serve around 800 meals a month, so they value any volunteer who is willing to lend a hand with the distribution process. As a volunteer, you’ll be able to learn and observe the lifestyle of the people that aren’t very well off. In the process of sharing, you get to meet a lot of new people in the neighborhood, from all walks of life. You can enjoy the thrill of collecting food that would have otherwise been thrown away, the camaraderie of joining an RHA ’squad’, and the joy of handing over some good food to the people who deserve it.
TRUST US, IT’S AN AMAZING FEELING!
You’ll become part of a community that believes that everyone has a right to feel valued and respected. Join Robin Hood Army Sri Lanka and see the Colombo as you’ve never seen it before.

Inductions are your first steps to helping to provide food without borders and giving potential volunteers the chance to meet the team and see how the process works. They provide all the information needed for you to start helping out.
Inductions are done before the food drive on Saturday. You can get in touch with RHA Sri Lanka to reserve an induction.
You will not need to bring anything to induction but if you wanted to volunteer after the session please wear something green for the drive. It is an ideal way to create an identity. The inductions take typically around 15 – 30 minutes. You will only need to attend this once. You can volunteer and add them to “work experience” or “volunteer hours.” This information will be given at the induction. No experience is needed to join the team. You will learn everything you need to know to work at our sites during your volunteer time.
