They drove to restaurants and collected food waste and distributed to almost    100 people sleeping in the Delhi overnight. This was very inspiring and lot of their friends and colleagues joined the group and soon the strangers too.

It has 500 volunteers    13 cities, including Hyderabad, Mumbai and Kolkata. In April this year, the group also began operations in Pakistan cities, Karachi and Lahore.  The army maintains decentralization as every chapter can work in their local area. The leaders of this army do not physically meet any members or physically    present in any location. They guide the new team members and help them to form communities. In addition to restaurants, there are also lavish weddings where lot of food goes waste. This is taken for homeless and also orphanages. In last winter, the army helped the people to get some winter coats. While distributing food, the team will not look at the nutritional aspects as they try    to fill the stomach of the hungry people. Also, eating sweets is not a routine for homeless. In Hyderabad, four of the volunteers fed around 970 people just with excess food from one wedding. https://www.facebook.com/robinhoodarmy Anyone can be a Robin Hood.
