Nando’s, the South African restaurant chain that is known for its world-famous flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken, 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, Delhi and Chandigarh.
This month-long social initiative, that has been successfully running since July 15, 2020, and will continue until August 15, 2020, is serving socially vulnerable people with nutritious Nando’s meals. Globally, the chain has been actively involved in social initiatives to contribute their little bit in giving back to society.
“As a brand, we believe in ‘Changing Lives Together’. The current crisis hasn’t been very kind to the vulnerable. Out of the 2,000 meals we’ve distributed over the last 15 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 selfless passion of their on-ground volunteers has helped us reach the most vulnerable groups,” said Sameer Bhasin, CEO, 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 25,000 fresh meals to those who need it most across Delhi, Bangalore, and Chandigarh,” said Neel Ghose, founder, Robin Hood Army.
Each casa or restaurant in Bangalore, Delhi and Chandigarh will grill a fresh, hot meal of chicken and rice which is packed with love and care 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 three cities.
