The Idea
A message from Fr. Bobby Jose Kattikad
The world needs a change. It needs more humanity, more compassion and more love.

Anjappam is such an initiative towards positive change. It is a charitable organisation that aims to be an agent of change in Kerala – a land that although called God's own country, is one that is rife with social inequality, especially when it comes to access to one of man's most primal needs - food.

A concept visualised by the renowned Fr. Bobby Jose Kattikad, Anjappam as a social collective effort aims to mitigate this social injustice by offering the marginalised sections with economic access to food.

The Vision
Anjappam is a food aid project in Kerala for the benefit of the economically backward and often forgotten section of Kerala's society, brought to life by the collective effort of a group of diverse people with a common goal of social betterment. It functions under the trust formed & registered as a Charitable Society: ALP/TC/257/2016.

The primary offering of Anjappam is a chain of economical restaurants that during the day act as places where good, healthy meals are available and in the evenings are converted into reading spaces, with libraries. Every visitor shall be welcomed regardless of race, sex, age, colour, state of origin, religious preference, disability or income.

Our focus is in ensuring access to food for all. Hence, instead of a billing counter, there is only a contribution box where patrons are free to offer what they can & if they can, after a meal.

In a nutshell, it is a way of enabling the poorer sections of our society with access to good food, clean eating space and an atmosphere for change and growth.

We have currently two outlets in Pathanathitta and hope to bring many more across the length and breadth of Kerala.

Our Offerings
Anjappam primarily aims to be a self-sustainable organisation that aspires to serve the poor and marginalised people of our society by making accessible food for the body as well as mind.
Food for the body
This is intended to be achieved by being economical restaurants where fresh, wholesome, healthy food and clean water shall be made accessible for all.
Meals prepared as much as possible from locally grown and organic produce and served with love and respect.
Most of our food comes from the produce and groceries offered by our patrons.

Food for the mind
Anjappam intends to facilitate recreation (Maansika Ullassam) for the marginalised sections by providing a safe, clean, uplifting environment for guests.
In the evenings, the food outlets of Anjappam shall be converted into dedicated space for reading, fellowship or meditation.
We have a library stocked with a diverse collection of books in Malayalam, contributed by our patrons.
Every so often, the evenings at Anjappam are enriched by stimulating discourses on topics that bind us together – be it on literature, poetry, street plays, travel, ecology and more.

Other Services
When possible, with the aid of donations, Anjappam will also undertake campaigns where basic food packs are distributed free of cost to the homeless and other needy sections of society.

FAQ

Anjappam is a social restaurant. A place for and by the community. A place that understands that food is the most primal need of a living being.

For a restaurant, it is also a unique because it pays forward your kindness to those in need of a meal for the body or for the soul.

Anjappam is run under a registered Charitable Trust, managed by a group of volunteers, supported by few salaried staff and facilitated by a community of friends (Appakootu). We are not managed or supported by any other organization/ entity.

Absolutely, no. It is secular in nature, backed by a group of people from diverse backgrounds & religions, bound by a common love for positive change.

Yes and No.

It is up to you to decide how much you can offer. Your offering in our Contribution Box can pay for your own meal as well as for those who cannot afford.

No. But we are a social enterprise, by which we mean that any money we receive through contributions, donations is given back to the society through our food & services or is used to meet the running costs of the establishment like rent, staff salaries, raw material costs, transportation etc.

We offer food for free because we believe in two things. One, that everyone should have access to food, regardless of the money in their pockets. Two, by giving the choice to pay to our patrons, we are promoting a humane culture of taking care of a fellow being in need.

We do not compromise on quality. In an era where cheap equals low quality, we take great pride in NOT following any of the cost-cutting measures of a commercial restaurant. Our food, as much as possible, is pesticide & chemical free and comes mostly from the backyards of our patrons.

We offer a well-stocked library & book shop where we promote reading and learning as a way of life. Anjappam also acts as a venue for social, cultural and even personal interaction – From family gatherings, to Book readings to Counseling sessions, Film & Cultural Fests, we are open to hosting a wide variety of events that promote fellowship and peace. Our past activities included Street plays, Ramayana Parayanam, Travelogues, Meet-ups with prominent thought leaders etc.
