Pintu and Annu build food kits
Neem Karoli Baba

How We Began


Baba's Feed Project was founded in May 2020 shortly after a trip to India was cut short by COVID-19.

We are a non-profit organization registered in California. Our 501 (c)(3) application is in process and pending approval. Baba's Feed Project is dedicated to feeding families in developing countries. Our mission is to purchase food for nourishing meals that are distributed to those in need.

The four founders began the project in response to the urgent need to serve the poorest of the poor - people faced with the economic shutdown and the inability to work and provide for their families.

With Pintu on the ground and us in New Zealand and the US ready to help, we found ourselves to be in the perfect position, with the perfect team, to really make a difference.

And we do so in the name of Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj-ji, and by his grace.

Pintu Kumar

One of the founders of Baba's Feed, Pintu serves as Operations Manager. He sources the food items for the kits. His family members help pack the kits, and once a week Pintu makes deliveries. In his village, his home is known as place where people can come to ask for help and be lovingly received.


Chris is a Founder and her responsibilities involve Social Media interactions. A native New Zealander, she visits India to work with Pintu and to see for herself what BFP needs to do and where. She is also a mother and is passionate about nutrition.


Founder and Director of BFP, Lauren oversees everyday operations while still managing her own business enterprise in California and being a mother to two sons. There aren't enough hours in the day for everything she does, but somehow she juggles it all and still finds time go to India to work with Pintu.


A founder of Baba's Feed Project, Billiejean is a businesswoman, mother, devoted animal lover and compassionate heart. She is always drawn to help those who are suffering.
