Apex food services industry body NRAI on Monday said its members have distributed over 50 lakh meals to the needy in April during the lockdown. Under the initiative #FeedTheNeedy, the members of National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) leveraged their food production capabilities to feed the underprivileged.

“As a responsible industry body comprising players in the food service industry, we could not have turned a blind eye to the hunger plight of the underprivileged and therefore decided to pool together our infrastructure and resources to feed the needy during the lockdown,” NRAI PresidentAnurag Katriar said in a statement.

The enthusiasm of member restaurants and generosity of the donors to this cause made the journey to 50 lakh easy, he added. “…we received tremendous and wholehearted support from various States, several departments and multiple authorities that helped us execute this idea without much hassles,” Katriar said.
