Dwarka: The ISKCON Temple in Sector 13, Dwarka has again started the initiative to reach out to the needy in the wake of coronavirus pandemic by feeding them food at their doorstep.
The ISKCON administration fed poor people last year as well when the lockdown was announced. The initiative is being supported by the Delhi government, which takes care of the logistics and administration.
As there is again a spike in corona cases in the national capital, ISKCON Dwarka has taken a pledge to and started “Shravan Kumar Seva” under The Food for Life initiative.
They serve food to elderly people, pregnant women, and people affected by Covid at their doorsteps. Meals served under this initiative are wholesome, nutritious, and immunity-boosting.
Pradyuman Priyadas, ISKCON mid-day meal Chairman told CitySpidey, “We have set up temporary kitchens. On the very first day, we reached 10-12 people through our helpline number. Later the capacity was increased to thousands and it is increasing day-by-day.”
The food being prepared includes rice, chapati, sabzi, and dal keeping in mind immunity boosting ingredients. For logistics, the temple has hired e-rickshaws, cars at Rs 200-300 each to distribute the food at various pockets of Dwarka.
In addition, Priyadas said, “Currently, we are limited to South-west Delhi and we have provided our helpline number in our websites to run this initiative and we are getting lots of calls. We are expecting more donations to keep it going. A situation should never arise where people are saved from coronavirus but die of hunger.”
ISKCON Dwarka has also secured extra capacities to feed people from wherever they are receiving news or calls.
