MUMBAI: A city-based vegan restaurant has started distributing free food to the needy and poor during the ongoing lockdown.
“We started the free food drive this Sunday, and are giving out as many as 150 food parcels containing vegetable rice pulao to the needy. Our chefs prepare healthy food which is sanitized and then given to unemployed persons, migrant workers and their children,” said the owner of Earth Cafe, V Khatwani.
During the start of Ramzan, the volunteers also went outside Mahim dargah to give food to whoever needed it. Later, they also went towards Mahim church.
Navi Mumbai-based activist, Anarjit Chauhan, commented: “Last year during the various lockdown phases, many NGOs and social service groups had come forward to help out the poor people. This time around too, some of the groups are getting ready for doing this service in various parts of the city.”
