While on the one side our country India is on the verge of becoming an economic giant at the global stage, millions of its citizens go underfed every day on the other. The gap between the rich and poor is getting wider with each passing day. It is the need of the hour that we start taking this issue very seriously. In order to feed a large group of undernourished children in Mumbai, Hotel Sahara Star has formed an Alliance with Zomato’s ‘Feeding India’ initiative.
Sahara India Pariwar, owing to its various philanthropic works over the year, has become one of the most popular public-spirited organizations in India. The Sahara Hotel has pledged to donate food to Feeding India to nourish thousands of poor children. This move will not only address the issue of hunger in Mumbai but also make sure a good chunk of food doesn’t get wasted and reaches to ones in need.
Manish Sodhi, CEO of Hotel Sahara Star said, “There is no bigger solemn task than bringing a smile on others’ faces, feeding those in need. We are committed to bring positive changes in the society by nourishing school children in alliance with Feeding India.”
Feeding India Foundation praised Sahara Star Hotel and thanked its manager Mr. Sahil for coming up to help undernourished children. Feeding India said in a tweet, “The ones who love food most understand the value of not wasting it. Thank you Chef Salil and Hotel Sahara Star Mumbai’s for pledging to donate all excess food from the hotel to Feeding India slum schools EVERY single day”
Extensive wastage of food is one of the major reasons leading to the problem of hunger in India. Subtara Roy’s dream project, Hotel Sahara Star will donate its excess food from the hotel. This will help Feeding India serve 50 more slum children daily.
Sahara India has led a number of CSR activities ever since its inception. Some of the numerous programs the company has been a part of are Aid social cause, civic development project, blood donation camp, etc. These kinds of initiatives justify the belief of Sahara India in social causes and bringing a change to the society.
