IHCL exceeds 1 million meals offered to healthcare providers and migrant workers

JRD Tata once said, “No success or achievement in material terms is worthwhile unless it serves the needs or interests of the country and its people and is achieved by fair and honest means.”

In line with this ethos and Tata Group values, Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), South Asia’s largest hospitality company, announced it had crossed the milestone of over 1 million meals distributed to healthcare providers and migrant workers affected by the spread of COVID-19 in Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Coimbatore and Agra.

Begun on March 23rd, 2020, the initiative has been spearheaded by the Taj Public Service Welfare Trust (TPSWT), with majority of nutritious meals being prepared by TajSATS, an IHCL company and India’s market leader in airline catering.

This milestone of 1 million meals distributed over the last 36 days of lockdown is a testament of the community’s trust in us. We are grateful to have been given this opportunity to assist the medical fraternity, who make sacrifices every day to keep our country and citizens safe and help migrant workers who are facing one of the biggest humanitarian crises ever.

With over 30,000 people affected by COVID-19 in the country so far, the medical community has quickly come to the fore as front line warriors in the fight against the virus.

In Bangalore, the company has provided over 9,500 meals to staff at Victoria Hospital and Epidemic Diseases Hospital in partnership with the Taj West End.
