On 16 October 2019, as a part of the World Food Day celebrations, volunteers of the NSS units of Vidya visited Snehalayam Old Age Home in Mundathikode. The team members served food for the inmates of Snehalayam and spent some quality time with the elderly citizens. They collected some data for creating better infrastructure and facilities for the inmates of the Old Age Home. The staff members of the institution were very supportive and thankful for this initiative from the students.
