As the Novel Coronavirus continues to affect people in the worst possible way, frontline warriors like doctors, nurses and police officers are also trying to keep the city safe from the chaos. Amidst the pandemic, actor Salman Khan decided to do his bit as he decided to revive his last years’ food donation drive in the city. Last year, somewhere around June, Salman started donating food to the warriors, well, once again, the actor starting providing meals in the city.
Yuva Sena leader Rahul Kanal, who is coordinating the endeavour with the actor, shared that Salman Khan got into the action as soon as the state government imposed a junta curfew from April 15. “Salman expressed his concern for the police officers, BMC staff and health workers on duty. Given their long work hours, he wondered how they would procure essentials since most shops are shut and the grocery stores are functioning in the stipulated four-hour window. Within 24 hours of our conversation, our food trucks hit the road,” says Kanal to Mid-Day.
Reportedly, the food trucks are distributing the food packets between Worli and Juhu. Kanal adds, “Our kits include tea, mineral water, a pack of biscuits, and snacks that include upma or poha or vada pav or pav bhaji. We have also started a helpline number on which the frontline workers can call, and we’ll travel to their area to serve them. It is Salman’s way of thanking them for their sustained efforts. This will go on till May 15.”
