Sangeet Kothari works with two home chefs in Kolkata: Shailaja Mundra, who manages only lunch; and Foodrack by Ambrish, who takes up all three meals. Meals are free of cost for those affected by COVID-19. Kothari and team have been contacted by friends and family, and even by people on Twitter. They step up their benevolence by also providing dry rations to orphanages and old-age homes that have run out of resources.
