Medical workers and policemen are at the forefront of protecting the general population from the Caronavirus pandemic. In most cases, they are not even able to go back to their homes and families. To show gratitude to these warriors, Ogara Foods, Bengaluru's ready-to-eat food company is distributing ready-to-cook food products free to the homes of medical workers and policemen. The driving force behind this endeavour is Deputy Chief Minister C. N. Ashwath Narayan Sir.
Ogara has a range of traditional Kannada foods from puliyogre to rave idlis in instant meal formats. These packets have to be only dipped in hot water before being served. A range of these food packets have been packed and ready to be dispatched directly to the homes of doctors, medical staff, policemen and journalists who require it. To make it easier, Ogara has obtained permission from the city police to home deliver it to the homes of the Corona warriors.
Food packets worth Rs 75 lakh are ready for dispatch. Raghunath, the Chairman and Managing Director of Ogara Foods said, "We are facing a situation that the world has never before experienced. It is the survival of mankind that is at stake here. There is no question of calculating profit and loss here. Everyone has to help everyone else. Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sir gave a call to all Indians to unite in this fight. This is our effort in that regard. Doctors, nurses, policeman, journalists, milk suppliers, pourakarmikas and others are out on the streets doing our battle. We need to show our gratitude to them if nothing else. They are putting themselves and their families in risk to protect us."
Deputy Chief Minister C. N. Ashwath Narayan Sir has supported Ogara Foods and Raghunath in this endeavor. "His support and guidance has helped us in managing this effort. We thank him," Raghunath said.
