Sanjeev Kapoor: Stand with Flood Victims in Chiplun and Mahad Regions; Provide 15,000 Meals Daily
Sanjeev Kapoor: Maharashtra is suffering devastating floods as heavy monsoonal rains lash several areas of the state. Many parts of the state already struggling with ongoing health pandemic, are now underwater. Stepping up in these challenging times, philanthropist and Masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor along with World Central Kitchen (WCK) founded by Chef José Andres and Taj Hotels started an initiative on July 30, 2021, to provide meals in flood-hit regions of Chiplun and Mahad.
As part of the ongoing initiative, the team will be supplying a total of 15,000 fresh-cooked meals every day to flood victims in these areas.
Speaking on this initiative, PadmaShri Awardee Chef Sanjeev Kapoor said, “Several areas in Maharashtra are flooded due to incessant rains causing many people to lose their lives and homes. Chiplun and Mahad are such regions. People in these flood-ravaged areas do not even have food to meet their basic nutritional needs.
We believe a small step forward of humanity can make a big difference in the lives of many. With our initiative, we are preparing high-quality meals to provide basic nutritional needs to these affected families. The mission is to feed as many flood-affected victims in these regions and beyond.”
Since the time COVID-19 gripped the country, MasterChef Sanjeev Kapoor along with Taj Hotels and WCK has been relentlessly dishing out fresh cooked nutritious meals to healthcare warriors, who are working non-stop against coronavirus.
So far, Chef Kapoor and Chef José Andres of World Central Kitchen have provided over 1 million meals to frontline workers in cities including Delhi, Gurugram, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Goa, Lucknow, and Varanasi alongside others.
