This is such a noble initiative. I recall a couple in Mumbai had also started such such a service many years back in Mumbai. They went around marriage halls asking people not to mess up the leftover food, keep it as tidy as possible. It was then distributed to the needy and homeless.
A similar initiative was taken by blogger Tricia, Shawn and Dr David in Malta. Read about it here http://triciaannemitchell.com/2016/01/27/malta-olive-oil-harvest-mediterranean/
