An initiative where no one goes hungry in the wake of COVID 19
Bengaluru: sCoolMeal & Lil’Goodness, a Bangalore based kids’ food and nutrition start-up, is partnering with Swiggy’s Hope, not Hunger campaign to provide nutritious, hygienic meals to the less privileged children in Bangalore. With the public life and businesses coming to a standstill amid the nation-wide lockdown, there are people who depend on the daily wages to put a meal on the table for themselves and their families. As a socially responsible corporate, sCoolMeal & Lil’Goodness is committed towards extending its support to the nation’s fight against Covid19. The company served 25,000 meals in the past week to underprivileged kids in Bangalore.
Harshavardhan, Co-Founder & CEO, Lil’Goodness and sCoolMeal said, “These are unprecedented times and we have a larger humanitarian responsibility to address the needs of the less privileged and less fortunate sections of the society. We are delighted to partner with Swiggy’s ‘Hope, Not Hunger’ initiative to provide much-needed help to the needy. We are an early-stage start-up ourselves but we will continue to participate and collaborate in whatever way we could to overcome this COVID 19 pandemic soon and contribute to the wellbeing of our nation.”
Also, sCoolMeal ensures thermal screening of its entire staff regularly and maintains the highest standards of hygiene and food safety to ensure that only the best food reaches our kids. The menu is designed scientifically to provide the right boost of essential nutrients to strengthen the immunity of the kids during these times. Safety being of paramount importance, SCoolMeal has ensured that its operations staff is taken care of in these tough times. SCoolMeal recently got re-certified for ISO-22000 (2018), a testimony to the high standards of hygiene and food safety being followed.
sCoolMeal has a differentiated model for providing fresh online subscription-based meals to kids in schools and daycare centers across Bangalore. Currently, we are serving 55 schools in Bangalore; sCoolMeal is rapidly scaling up its reach across the city- increasing the coverage of schools, day care centres, sports training centres, and kid’s activity centers. While the current pandemic episode has severely affected business for a startup like sCoolMeal, the founders are optimistic that once things come back to normal, the promise of safety, hygiene and nutrition that sCoolMeal follows will strengthen its value proposition to parents.
