As mentioned on Australian of the Day, Tejinder Singh works as an air conditioner mechanic and by night as a taxi driver. Despite his busy life, he still manages to find time to give back to the Darwin community, in the form of a monthly food drive, in which he feeds up to 100 of Darwin’s people.

Alongside young son Navdeep, he dedicates the last Sunday of every month to cooking and distributing vegetarian meals to any and all who are hungry,no matter what class or race. Often finishing his taxi shift in the early hours of the morning, this means his food drive is often completed on little sleep but the act of giving he says, gives him the energy to continue. He has rejected monetary offers from supporters, instead he encourages others to begin their own food drives within their local community.
