Extending its expertise in food and hospitality services, ITC Hotels is offering support to both central and state governments across different cities during this pandemic of Covid-19.
The key initiative is food distribution across cities based on the requirements of the local administration and hospitals:
- Mumbai: ITC Grand Central has made arrangements to deliver meals to doctors in MG Hospital. Food has also been catered to doctors at the Kasturba Hospital in Mumbai by ITC Grand Central.
- Bengaluru: ITC Gardenia is lending its support with 1000 food packets daily for 15 days (15,000 meals) to the Municipal Corporation
- New Delhi: ITC Maurya and Sheraton have been providing over 1,500 meals daily for distribution to migrant workers.
- Lucknow: Fortune Hotel is also lending assistance through the provision of more than 1000 meals per day.
This initiative will be soon rolled out in other metros including Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad.
In addition to providing meals, ITC Hotel properties in Jaipur and Goa provided shower caps for doctors and healthcare workers as well as ensuring availability of sanitisers.
ITC Maratha, Mumbai was identified as one of the quarantine spaces by the Mumbai Municipal Corporation.
ITC Hotels is also working closely with the local administration to offer similar spaces at ITC Grand Chola, Chennai and ITC Kohenur, Hyderabad to enable stopover of asymptomatic international travellers as and when required.
