Mumbai’s amazing lunch couriers bring office workers home-cooked meals every day

Continuing a tradition that dates back to the 19th century, Mumbai’s dabbawalla food delivery services consist of teams who transport meals cooked by wives and mothers at home to husbands and sons at work. In Dabbawalla, the US filmmakers Mirra Fine and Daniel Klein explore the lively practice over the course of a day, following several food couriers as they hustle to bring a taste of home to the workplace.

Directors: Mirra Fine, Daniel Klein
