Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) announced on Tuesday (June 22) that it has crossed the milestone of more than 1 million meals delivered through its culinary platform - Qmin to healthcare professionals against the fierce second wave of the pandemic. These meals were set up by the Taj Public Service Welfare Trust (TPSWT).
The scope of the initiative has been extended to 38 hospitals in 12 cities of 10 states. These cities are Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Mysore, New Delhi, Varanasi and Vishakhapatnam.
In the first wave in 2020, over 3 million meals were delivered to medical and migrant workers across the country.
In a free enterprise, the community is not just another stakeholder in the enterprise, but is in fact the very purpose of its existence.

The second wave of the virus has put a strain on all frontline medical staff. Qmin's nutritious and healthy meals help us to focus entirely on our patients without worrying about our own food. We are deeply grateful to IHCL for supporting us in the fight against the virus.
Dr. Chandrakant Pawar, Kasturba Hospital.
Guided by our culture of Tajness and keeping the community at the heart of everything, we stand in solidarity with the nation in the fight against COVID. This opportunity has allowed us to play a small role in supporting and feeding those who have kept us safe during these times. We are grateful to all our COVID warriors - the medical fraternity - for their relentless fight against the pandemic.
