Feed India Campaign celebrates 30 million meals in 5 months
Chef Vikas Khanna has left no stone unturned to ensure that the Nationwide lockdown didn’t affect the lives of daily wagers and those struggling for livelihood. Keeping his responsibility as a citizen and out of sheer humanity, he kick-started the Feed India Campaign five months back. The campaign aimed at providing meals, essential goods to various parts of the country. Hundreds of food trucks were sent out on roads carrying dry goods, covering thousands of kilometers to provide help.
Now, the Feed India Campaign after five months of endless hard work is celebrating 30 million meals that have gone out to those who need it the most.
Be it the Bihar & Assam flood victims, dabbawallas, cine artists, or NGOs, the campaign has covered extensive areas and touched the livelihood of millions around the country.
Talking about this, Chef Vikas Khanna, who has been spearheading the campaign from the US, says, “I am very happy that our purpose and dream of supporting people by providing food has reached a landmark of 30 million. It required a lot of planning and correct execution, but the results have been beyond satisfactory. I am also very grateful to Mukul Madhav Foundation, for helping Feed India Initiative reach far and wide. It is the support of each other that we can touch lives and make difficult times less challenging for those in need.”
With the help of many NGOs and NDRF and other organizations, the initiative has been a successful endeavor. Besides the meals, Vikas has also distributed 4,000,000 slippers, 3million sanitary pads, and 2 million face masks to those in need.
Ritu Prakash Chhabria, Trustee, Mukul Madhav Foundation says, “Through Feed India campaign, we were fortunate enough to address different segments of the society like transgenders, boatsmen, etc and also helped make festivals like Eid and Ganpathi more meaningful for communities in these difficult times. We could reach out to so many people and understand their situation and their needs. We have been supporting our society, hospitals, institutions, and various people by providing life-saving medical equipment, medical essentials, grocery kits, and much more PAN India. Associating with Vikas Khanna and the Feed India Campaign we further enhanced our initiative. It has been a wonderful journey for us and together we have been stronger in solidarity.
More recently, as part of the Feed India Campaign is also distributed 2 million meals during the Ganpati and Shraadh times, endorsing the thought that the true essence of festivals is in caring for others and giving with pure intent. The meal bags were first offered as Prasadam to Lord Ganesha in Siddhivinayak Temple, Andheri Ka Raja and Lal Bagh Ka Raja, before the trucks will be on their route to distribute food from 7th September with NDRF.
