Nando’s, the South African restaurant chain, has joined hands with the volunteer-based zero-funds Robin Hood Army to provide 25,000 fresh, chicken meals to the needy across the slums of Bangalore and Delhi. This month-long CSR initiative will continue until August 15, 2020, and is serving socially vulnerable people with nutritious Nando’s meals.
Globally a brand, Nando’s has been actively involved in social initiatives to contribute their bit in giving back to society. “The current crisis hasn’t been very kind to the vulnerable. Out of the 2,000 meals we’ve distributed over the last four days, 70% have been given to daily wage workers who lost their means of livelihood during the COVID-19 pandemic. We feel that if a worker can have one fresh, hot, nutritious meal a day especially when he doesn’t know where his next meal will come from, then we have reduced his worry considerably. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner than the Robin Hood Army to feed the needy. The passion of their on-ground volunteers have helped us reach the most vulnerable groups,” said Sameer Bhasin, Chief Executive Officer, Nando’s.
“Our Robins across the world try their level best to address the hunger in local communities, and bring smiles to the least fortunate. We are really grateful to partner with global food chain Nando’s and serve 25000 fresh meals to those who need it most across Delhi, Bangalore, and Chandigarh,” said Neel Ghose, Founder, Robin Hood Army.
Each Nando’s casa or restaurant in Bangalore and Delhi will grill a fresh, hot meal of chicken and rice which is packed keeping all hygiene and sanitation protocols in mind. The Robin Hood Army, with its vast network of volunteers, will distribute these meals to those in need across the two cities.
