As the COVID-19 pandemic grows, there’s a section of society that has been brought to its knees. This includes the homeless, wage laborers, and stranded migrant workers. The people who depend on the day’s wages to put a meal on the table for themselves and their families.
At the same time, there are restaurants in the same cities that run the very real risk of shutting down permanently due to lack of business. This, in turn, has the potential to destroy the livelihoods of thousands of kitchen workers, waiters, cooks, and many more.
We can save them.
What are we doing?
- Swiggy is leveraging its network of partners to support several government bodies, NGOs, and other entities in their efforts to distribute meals in COVID-19 relief camps
- Each 400gm meal is hygienically prepared and comprises rice, dal, and vegetables, to ensure nutritional needs are taken care of
- As of 3rd April, Swiggy is distributing an average of 1 lakh+ meals per day
- With your support, we aim to distribute an estimated 5 lakh daily meals across India in the coming weeks
How can you help?
As little as ₹600 could provide a meal for 20 people. Every contribution, no matter what amount, goes into preparing and distributing a meal for an underprivileged member of society. With this, you can help make sure a homeless person survives to see another day of dignity and hope. This initiative will also help keep the lights on in restaurants that would otherwise be forced to shut down and leave thousands of workers unemployed.
