November 16, 2022

Foodlink Global Restaurant & Catering LLC, recognized for being a market leader in luxury catering experiences and for a growing footprint of restaurants & cloud kitchen brands in India, UAE, Milan and Turkey announces its hunger relief initiative – Project ‘SHARE A MEAL’.

Under this initiative Foodlink distributes freshly cooked, healthy & wholesome free meals to the undernourished sections of society equivalent to the number of affluent guests that it feeds. 

The program has been started in Mumbai with multiple beneficiaries such as SPRJ Kanyashala, a trust that has been working determinedly in the sphere of girl child education and women welfare activities. Foodlink provides over 5000 meals per month to different such organizations contributing to the society. 

The ‘Share A Meal’ program will be initiated in all the Indian cities from where Foodlink currently runs it’s operations which includes Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Bangalore. The beneficiaries currently include orphanages, homeless street dwellers, old age homes and other segments in need with focus on children and women. 

Sanjay Vazirani, CEO, Foodlink will be personally driving and monitoring the initiative. Upon asking the thought behind the program, he said, “The Global Hunger Index still ranks India at 101 out of 116 countries. 189.2 million people i.e.,14% of our population is still undernourished. These findings reveal the truth of the food insecurity situation in India. I had started Foodlink in 2003 with a vision to drive excellence in the Indian catering segment to make Foodlink a globally recognized brand. While we have realized this dream and have had the honor to serve the most sought-after corporations and celebrities, it’s time to serve a bigger mission. 

As a part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, Foodlink will now contribute by feeding one poor person for every privileged guest we serve. With this strong purpose driving us, I believe that Foodlink will be able to create a far-reaching impact by touching many lives in meaningful ways and make the world a better place.”

Foodlink also plans to run campaigns to sensitize the citizens on this issue, facilitate collaborations with other organizations working at the grass root level and take initiatives to raise funds for the cause through its patrons. To run the projects, the F&B giant will launch Foodlink Foundation as its philanthropic arm. 

Foodlink has a long history of feeding and supporting local communities. It has collaborated with different NGOs over the last 10 years to provide nutritious meals for the underprivileged. It had also run “The Khichdi Project ” during the lockdowns for the poor, hungry migrant laborers and daily wagers who were among the worst affected in the Covid-19 crisis. It activated its central kitchens amidst strict lockdown to feed over 1 Lakh people every day. “The Khichdi Project” was recognized as among the most efficient, large-scale, hygienic meal programs that served Mumbai during the Covid crisis.
