Feeding India by Zomato & The Shikhar Dhawan Foundation Join Hands to distribute Ration worth Rs. 17 Lakhs

In an attempt to combat hunger amid rising inflation, The Shikhar Dhawan Foundation joined hands with Feeding India by Zomato to help distribute ration to 500 families in Village Tejpur in West Bengal. The distribution happened on 11th, 12th & 13th September 2022 and would help in delivering approx. 2.25 lakh meals.

Shikhar Dhawan Foundation partnered with Feeding India by Zomato to support the distribution of 42000 kg to the needy families in West Bengal. The aim of this association is to further build on the competitive advantage of both the organizations and amplify the hunger eradication efforts carried out by both partners.

Feeding India by Zomato is a non-profit organisation dedicated to eradicating hunger and improving malnutrition outcomes in India. We work toward this mission by supporting large-scale systemic interventions with the government as well as providing essential food support to underserved communities in the form of raw grains and freshly cooked food. Feeding India has served 150 million+ meals through various campaigns such as Poshan to Paathshaala, Feed the Daily Wager, Meals for Migrants etc.

 Shikhar Dhawan, the founder of the organization, said, “The pandemic had left many jobless and we have seen entire slum-dwelling being jobless at one time. The children are the ones who suffered the most. They are hungry, malnourished and vulnerable to diseases. We are working on their education & hunger requirements simultaneously & I am thankful to the partners in this activity who are supporting our cause.”

Vishal Kumar (Head, Feeding India ) Said, “Shikhar has been an inspiration to the youth of our country through his invaluable service for India on cricket field. With his philanthropic venture Shikhar Dhawan Foundation (SDF), he is supporting key causes including hunger and has set up a strong example of giving back to community. We are glad to be partnering with SDF at a time when the entire country is celebrating Nutrition Month. We look forward to amplifying the impact of our work through the collective efforts of both the organizations.

 Kanika Dewan, DIRECTOR -Impact and Strategy at the Shikhar Dhawan Foundation, stated, “The children are our future and this is the minimum we can do for them for a better future of our country. Over 50 youngsters were engaged to serve as community workers to help distribute 42000 kg of ration in Village Tejpur. The foundation has a main purpose – to slowly eliminate the social issues and help the people in need. We want to help in our own way and what better place to start than in rural areas of the country who need us the most. For 3 days we started the drive at 7am and got bulk ration supply. First, we packed the supplies in bags. Then we made a list of all the items and noted down the families details where the ration had to be distributed. We then invite the needy to the distribution point to give away the ration kits. “
