Reliance Foundation has scaled up its meal distribution programme under Mission Anna Seva to provide over 3 crore meals to marginalised and under-resourced communities across India. Under the programme, Reliance Foundation is providing cooked meals, ready-to-eat food packets and dry ration kits to families and bulk ration to community kitchens. The entire staff of Reliance Foundation is working together in the mission on a war footing to ensure that no Indian goes hungry during the lockdown period. RIL has contributed Rs 535 crore to various relief funds, including Rs 500 crore to the PM-CARES Fund.

Mission Anna Seva is set to become the largest meal distribution programme ever undertaken by a corporate foundation anywhere globally. In a letter to 2 lakh-plus Reliance colleagues early Monday, Reliance Foundation’s Founder and Chairperson Nita M. Ambani said, “We have launched Mission Anna Seva – our pledge to feed needy Indians. In our culture, Anna Daan is MahaDaan. The Upanishads teach us that ‘food itself is Brahma’, Through Mission Anna Seva, we will provide over 3 crore mealsto marginalised communities and frontline workers across the nation.”
