Chef Thomas Zacharias' passion for indigenous cuisines led him to open 'The Locavore' in 2022. In what is now touted as a "food revolution," Zacharias' venture has helped him reach out to tribal communities and blend their culinary legacy in contemporary cuisines to offer the urban milieu a taste of regional flavours.

Ahead of its second anniversary, The Locavore initiated a fundraising campaign for a tribal school in Maharashtra known for its nutritional meal program. Surrounded by chikoo orchards in Dahanu, the Tamarind Tree School is a centre of quality education for tribal children and integrates the teaching experience with nutritional meals, setting an example of "learning with sustainability."
