WHAT YOU ARE GIVING
This product provides 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of rice, which provides the rice needed for 12 individual meals. Based on a typical family of 4 in India, eating rice 3 meals per day, this gift lasts one day. Your bag comes with a unique hang tag number, which allows you to find the photo and story of the family you are helping on ricelove.com. In order to make hand-delivery possible, others will be contributing to the same family you are. We deliver 25 kilos of rice per family at a time, which provides for about a month supply of rice! Buying this bag feeds families!
SUPPORT FAIR TRADE
We only partner with factories that respect the environment, have safe working conditions, no child labor, and at a minimum pay the local living wages. Buying our bags provides quality jobs!
