An Australian-Indian food start-up aims to provide relief to Indian students in Melbourne struggling with worries about their families battling the deadly COVID-19 pandemic back in India.
Melbourne-based start-up Yummie’s has organised a free meal box giveaway event on Sunday for Indian students.
Maneesh of the Yummie’s says the purpose is to provide an opportunity to the students to share their sorrows and happiness, with others who are in a similar situation.
“With the COVID 2.0 hitting India hard, there are many students in Melbourne who are worried about their families in India. This event was planned to offer free food with the intention of providing support and care to the students here,’ said Maneesh, a young entrepreneur and IT professional who has started Yummies to connect tiffin service providers to the customers.
He says as a person of Indian origin living in Australia, we can offer our prayers and participate wholeheartedly in the fundraisers.
“Look after each other and be the support in these difficult times,” said Maneesh.
The free meal box giveaway is on Sunday, 23 May, in Carlton, Melbourne.
