Hotel group feeding COVID-19 frontline workers
Pride Hotels distributing 1,000 meals a day
Pride Group of Hotels announced it is feeding COVID-19 frontline workers by distributing 1,000 food parcels every day until April 14, 2020 (the end of the current COVID-19 coronavirus lockdown period) in the cities of Pune, Ahmedabad, New Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, and Nagpur in India.
Ever since the outbreak of the dreaded COVID-19 coronavirus, the frontline work teams have been working around the clock to support efforts to bring things under control. These include doctors, nurses, service experts, police officers, medical practitioners, hospital support staff, and civil service personnel, among others.
Prepared by in-house chefs, at each of Pride Hotel’s properties, the food parcel is comprised of rice, dal, vegetable, and chapatis. Indian Dal is a flavorful vegetarian side dish made of yellow or red lentils and spices. It is a vegetarian side dish for any Indian meal. Chapatis are made of whole-wheat flour known as atta, mixed into dough with water, edible oil, and optional salt in a mixing utensil called a parat, and is cooked on a tava (flat skillet).
As Pride Hotels is feeding COVID-19 frontline workers, it is strictly abiding by all social distancing and personal hygiene guidelines. The parcels are neatly packed to be distributed under the guidance of a non-governmental organization (NGO) and local police stationed in each of these cities.
“Pride Hotel takes pride in being a truly Indian hospitality company. Presently, as we witness an unprecedented lockdown in our country due to the coronavirus pandemic, our heart goes out to the healthcare workers and police officers who are leading from the frontline. They’re our real heroes.
“We understand that most of them are deprived of basic food and water during this difficult period. As a small gesture of appreciation towards our most deserving saviors, we at Pride Group of Hotels are distributing free food parcels at our 7 properties. We are extremely happy to be part of this noble cause,” said Satyen Jain, CEO of Pride Group of Hotels.
