Hospitality Industry Turns To Help India During COVID Crisis

Amidst the continuing crisis with COVID in India, the hospitality sector globally has turned to help how it can with many leading restaurants helping fund aid. Restaurants across the world have offered their help to raise funds from special events to help the supply of oxygen and medical supplies to India.

In London, the JKS restaurants group which consists of Gymkhana, Brigadiers, Trishna, Hoppers, delivery service Motu Indian Kitchen and online shop Ambassador General Store is leading the UK side of the charity initiative 1 Billion Breaths which is raising money for the Give India Oxygen charity. The campaign at the participating London restaurants is running throughout June, with restaurants launching a range of initiatives including exclusive dinners, bespoke delivery menus and adding charity donations to bills.

In North America nearly 30 Indian restaurants joined the campaign too in May dishing out special meals with all proceeds benefiting 1 Billion Breaths for India. Restaurants including NYC's Gupshup, Chicago's Superkhana and LA's Ghee Indian Kitchen all took part.

On the other side of the planet a number of chef Jessi Singh's Melbourne locations, including Daughter in Law, Mrs Singh, Horn Please and Mr Brownie, came together in May hosting special dinners to show their support and raise funds too.
