Title: Free supper for the hungry, Bogra

Akboria Hotel in Bogra is a unique family run restaurant that has been cooking for and feeding the poor and needy for over 100 years. Established in 1910 by Akbar Ali Mia, this quality restaurant operates like any other restaurant during the day but at night, it cooks rice and curry for the poor. It is usual for restaurants to give away

left over food to the poor, but not Akboria who cooks specially for the poor. On average, it feeds about 300 people everyday. The current proprietor of this hotel assures that it will continue to be a benevolent agent towards the needy for generations to come.
