Reliance to provide 3 crore meals

Reliance Foundation has scaled up its meal distribution programme, Mission Anna Seva, to provide over 3 crore meals to marginalised and under-resourced communities across India.

According to a statement, Reliance Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), has already distributed over 2 crore meals in 68 districts across 16 States and one Union Territory.

Under the programme, Reliance Foundation is providing cooked meals, ready-to-eat food packets and dry ration kits to families and bulk ration to community kitchens.

The beneficiaries of the programme include daily wage earners, slum dwellers, urban service providers, factory workers, and residents of old-age homes and orphanages. The statement said frontline workers such as junior medical staff, police personnel and security forces were also provided meals.

“At some locations, Reliance Foundation is also distributing food tokens that could be redeemed at Reliance Retail outlets, such as Reliance Fresh, Reliance Smart Superstore, Reliance Smart Point, and Sahakari Bhandar.”

Reliance Foundation is also supplying relief kits and bulk rations to over 70 partners who are engaged in similar hunger alleviation programmes in their respective locations.
