Feeding India, founded by Ankit Kawatra and Srishti Jain in 2014, is an award-winning NGO working to solve the complex challenges of hunger, food wastage and malnutrition in India. India’s leading food-tech co, Zomato in its 11th anniversary has joined hands with Feeding India for the same cause, to fight hunger by serving one lakh meals in a day taking no food wastage into account.
Well, undoubtedly, Zomato, who launched its online ordering and food delivery services in May 2015, has very strong market network globally as the food tech company works with 1.4 million restaurants across 24 countries and serves more than 65 million users every month, which is highly remarkable.
Deepinder Goyal, Founder and CEO, Zomato has said in his statement that, while growing they want to add value simultaneously for everyone in the ecosystem. They are already in the walk towards creating jobs and skill-building opportunities for many in India with 1.8 lakh delivery partners. Even they have also focused on developing Zomato Kitchen hubs in smaller cities in India to drive growth and opportunities for their restaurant partners. And their partnership with Feeding India will be a great help in routing excess food from restaurants to undernourished segments of our society.
How Zomato’s Partnership with Feeding India Will Add Value in Society?
- Zomato and Feeding India will together target every source of food wastage in farms, restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, corporates and events. The Zomato network will join hands into Feeding India’s already existing models. These models focus on sustainably feeding the many who sleep hungry every night, serving one lakh meals in a day, thus walking towards for a Better India.
- Zomato’s strongest market network will add fuel to Feeding India’s already existing sustainable models. It will eventually solve the biggest challenge our country currently faces — sustainably feeding its 20 million hungry population.
- Feeding India has grown to 8,500+ volunteers today who are working in 65+ cities, through 50+ community fridges, 12 food recovery vans, and five sustainable projects serving 20 million meals till date, which is highly appreciable. So, just imagine, if Zomato and Feeding India comes into one picture, what changes it can bring globally and can change many lives of individual, ending hunger and food wastage.
Working towards society doesn’t end over here for Zomato. The food giant company has also partnered with the world’s leading short-video app, TikTok, to spread the awareness and create a dent on food wastage, hunger and malnutrition in India.
Sachin Sharma, Director – Sales and Partnership, TikTok India, said in a statement that feels extremely proud of TikTok creators who actively participated in Zomato’s Food Drive, thus coming forward as ‘Hunger Heroes’. This partnership with Zomato is a commitment for TikTok by giving a platform to its creators to express themselves to a global audience and spread positive messages on the platform, being a responsible technology company.”
