Amid the COVID-19 crisis, New-Delhi-based cloud kitchen startup Cheferd Foods — which runs brands like POMP, Burger in My Box, and Deli Salad Co — is providing free meal service to daily wagers and marginalised communities.

At present, the startup is distributing meal packets across South Delhi in AIIMS, Safdarjung Hospital, and slum areas around the Okhla region.

According to an official statement, it distributes meals during the lunch hours between 2 pm and 4 pm every day. In fact, Cheferd Foods also changes its menu daily to help serve delicious meals every day.

The startup revealed that it will continue with this initiative for at least one and a half months, and will extend it depending on the situation.

“Our society is going through an unprecedented time now. However, the most affected people are the ones at the bulging bottom of the pyramid. They are the most vulnerable in this situation. Our food distribution service ensures that we do everything in our capacity to help them in this hour of need,” Sehaj Singh Kukreja, Co-founder, Cheferd Foods, said in a statement.

Besides the free meal initiative, the startup is also providing three masks per person to create awareness around the pandemic.
