Life, as we knew has changed. Our fast-paced lives have come to a halt because of a pandemic that has shaken the world to its core. A pandemic so severe that it has brought countries to a standstill.
While you try to look for ideas to keep yourself busy in the quarantine, there are people who are risking their lives out there fighting the unseen enemy every single day. These are our heroes who are fighting on the front line for us.
In these times of crisis, we wanted to serve the society with endless support and food.
We are proud to announce that we, at Rajbhog Foods, have stepped up and put our food where it truly counts during this time of distress. We have joined hands with some courageous organizations that are helping us donate food for the greater good!
Over the past few months, we have donated food to the front-line workers – Doctors and Nurses, as well as the first responders – Policemen and EMT. We have also made our humble donation to the general public via various food banks.
We have donated over $190,000 worth of food items totalling over 27,000 lbs of food across many locations with the help of our partners and organisations. News India Times featured a story about us donating food during these trial times, read: Jersey-based Indian Manufacturer Rajbhog donates 14 tons of food amid Covid Pandemic
We would like to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to our partners for the endless efforts they have been putting with us and helping us do our bit for the society.
