From Top Chef to Chef For Poor People
How far would you go to help hungry and poor people? Perhaps as far as Narayanan Krishnan?
Krishnan, 29, was an award-winning chef shortlisted for an elite job at a hotel in Switzerland. Before heading to Europe, he visited his family in India. The trip ended up changing his life. As Krishnan told CNN:
I saw a very old man eating his own human waste for food. It really hurt me so much. I was literally shocked for a second. After that, I started feeding that man and decided this is what I should do the rest of my lifetime.
Over the weekend, CNN honored Krishnan as a Top Ten Hero for 2010. He now runs the Akshaya Trust, which has served over 1.5 million meals since 2002, when Krishnan began feeding people using his own savings. See more of his story below.
