In a scale and spread unheard of before, over 70 lakh people in 17,200 centres across the world partook meals on the occasion of the 5th anniversary celebration of ‘Art of Giving’ on Thursday.

The theme of this year’s celebration was ‘Pyaar Bhara Pack’ – or feeding with love – standing on the premises of ‘People’s Contribution, People’s Participation’.
