The message circulating around says that "if you have a function or party at your home and when you see food wasted, please don't hesitate to call 1098. They will come and collect the food. Please circulate this message which can help feed many children".
She said they have even issued a warning on their website.
"We understand there is a chain mail circulating that says - one should call up 1098 to pick up left over food after a party etc so that it is not wasted. This is not true. We are India's only and most widespread Children's phone emergency outreach service (1098) for children in need of care and protection," the message on the website said.
Childline is currently operating at 450 locations, including 76 key railway stations and received about 1.4 crore calls in 2017-18 (till June 30).
