The foundation recognizes the need to resume the school meal programme in a safe manner. We have taken all essential steps for safe & nutritious meal delivery. Our employees are fully vaccinated and trained to carefully adhere to the COVID safety protocols from preparing, packaging, and delivering food to the mapped schools.

With the resumption of schools after 18 months, we have curated a special menu for the beneficiaries, i.e., a veg biryani loaded with beans, carrot, capsicum, potato, and cabbage, and a sweet in the form of moong dal payasam.”
