Private as well as district-run community kitchens in Lucknow are ensuring hygienic and nutritious meals for all!
Amid the prolonged extension of the lockdown restrictions in Lucknow, several people are finding it increasingly difficult to arrange food. The woes are significantly colossal for the needy and the kin of COVID-19 patients at city hospitals and other treatment facilities. While a number of tiffin services were initiated to placate the troubles of the pandemic-stricken, these two community kitchens in Lucknow have now been constituted to facilitate free, nutritious and hygienic cooked meals for all.
The Jiamau Community Kitchen
Set up by the Lucknow Nagar Nigam, this district-run community centre has emerged as a beneficial amenity for the COVID-19 patients in hospitals and their attendees or family members. As per reports, food is cooked here and then ferried in municipality vehicles to hospitals and other public places in Lucknow, where it is distributed for free to all.
Special care is undertaken to ensure that all food prepared and packed under premium hygienic care. The service is an extension of the district's efforts to ensure that no person goes unfed while a global pandemic is raging across the nation.
The Marwari Community Kitchen
The community aid has been launched by a group of samaritans at Maharaja Agrasen Public School, located in the Motinagar area of Lucknow. As per reports, this service will remain operational till June 6 and will provide Marwari Thali (Marwari-style meal) to all at zero cost. The food prepared here is cooked at the school's kitchen and then packed in covered plastic containers, to maximise protection against any kind of contamination.
A warm meal is crucial to maintain immunity among all and boost recovery in COVID-19 positive patients and otherwise. These free of cost meals are proving to be a boon for several people who are caught in the mayhem of pandemic losses and heavy medical bills. With special attention to hygiene and safety, these food provisions are proving to be an essential respite for all!
