Pune: Food delivery service Swiggy has partnered with various commercial kitchens, NGOs and state governments to provide daily meals to thousands of underprivileged who have limited access to nutritious food during this 21-day lockdown.

The ‘Hope, Not Hunger’ initiative was launched last week to support the Delhi Government’s programme to feed the needy. Swiggy helped organise the preparation and distribution of nutritious meals twice a day across the relief camps in Delhi with the support of partners such as Compass Kitchens, Lite Bite Foods and SmartQ.

The relief effort was quickly scaled to Mumbai with the help of NGOs Pratham, HelpAge India and Yuva, and Elior India acting as the food supply partner. Since then, it has been taken to other cities. Each meal served for lunch and dinner includes adequate portions of rice, dal and vegetables to ensure the nutritional needs of the individual are met.
