If there’s one section in India that has faced the maximum blow of COVID-19, it is the daily wage labourers. With no source of income or supply of ration, a great number of migrant workers, away from their homes, are struggling to survive the global pandemic. Hence, to help these people to maximum capacity, Moonshine Food Ventures, along with the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), Pure Hearts NGO, and Vision Unlimited by Dr Shibal Bhartiya, has joined hands with the District Administration of Gurgaon, to feed these stranded migrant workers.
“We have been preparing 2,500 meals a day in our restaurant kitchen to feed the needy since March 31, and are going to do so till things get opened up completely. We are eyeing to increase the number to 3,000 meals on a daily basis, for which we need support on daily basis from our friends and would urge more people to support generously,” said Vishal Anand, Founder, Moonshine Food Ventures.
Prepared under the careful supervision of their corporate chef Sidharth Sharma at one of the Dana Choga’s restaurant kitchen in Nirvana Courtyard Gurgaon, these meals are distributed by a trained team of volunteers with the help of city’s District Administration. Taking all safety and hygienic measures, the aim is to reach every corner of the city and not let any poor or needy stay empty stomach.
