Thali tries to rescue food to feed those in need. We are a non-denominational food rescue charity. We collect excess fresh food that would otherwise be thrown away by corporate offices, private, restaurants, caterers, wedding halls, etc. The food collected is of a high quality and would normally be thrown away.
Thali is a non-profit organization and is registered as a Trust under the Government of Pakistan. It came into existence with the objective of feeding the less fortunate through meals the more fortunate take for granted. Food, being the most basic human need, is denied to many. At Thali, we intend to begin with addressing this necessity.
Started as an effort in 2007, and established as a formal legal entity in August 2009, Thali has effectively completed 8 projects to date, and served approximately 250,000+ beneficiaries to date!
With operations in Islamabad & Rawalpindi, Thali aims at spreading its target beneficiaries to other cities in Pakistan, sustaining every man, woman and child neglected by society by giving them a helping hand, a reason to smile and eventually instating a self dependency to face life with full vigor.
