Speaking on the initiative, Saurabh Kochhar, CEO, foodpanda said, “Being a food delivery platform, we realise what hardships the underprivileged have to go through to afford one square meal a day. It is our constant endeavour to spread happiness through food and we wish to extend this belief to the needy sections of society as well. We want to send out a message of hope through our humble contribution to the efforts of both Care India and Sakshi NGO who are working in this direction.”
Additionally, foodpanda has made monetary contributions to Sakshi NGO. It had also internally collected clothes for children which were handed over to the organisation at its Chattarpur branch on World Hunger Day. Besides this, food packets and beverages were distributed among the children, in collaboration with Chaayos, a foodpanda partner vendor.
“Together with Care India and Sakshi NGO, foodpanda aims to make a difference no matter how big or small to curb the universal problem of hunger. There is clearly no shortage of food in the world, it is only the distribution of it that is imbalanced. It hopes to continue to take up such initiatives to address this pertinent issue through similar activities in the future as well,” said the company’s official release.
