Malabar Group Intensified its World Hunger Programme

News Desk, News Nation 360 : In observance of World Hunger Day, Malabar Group, the sixth-largest jewellery company in the world, distributed food packets throughout Kolkata as part of its CSR initiative, "Hunger-Free World," which aims to feed the nation's hungry with wholesome meals every day. Malabar Gold and Diamonds Store, Camac Street, and Malabar Gold and Diamonds Store, Kankurgachi, undertook the "Hunger-Free World" Project, which involved feeding the city's hungry population. The ground-breaking "Hunger-Free World" project by Malabar Group is committed to feeding the hungry every day and fighting hunger worldwide. It is in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 2 (Zero Hunger) of the UN. For the fiscal year 2024–2025, Malabar Group also revealed plans to broaden the scope of its "Hunger-Free World" initiative and present an ambitious yearly distribution plan aimed at providing 51,000 wholesome meals per day to a greater number of people and cities throughout the nation. The organisation intends to grow and is currently distributing about 3500 food packets throughout Kolkata, with a total of 5700 food packets distributed throughout the East Region, which includes West Bengal, Odisha, and Jharkhand. It also wants to expand to additional cities. The well-known social welfare organisation Thanal-Daya Rehabilitation Trust assists in the implementation

of the Hunger-Free World initiative. Different locations have been outfitted with contemporary kitchens so talented chefs can prepare wholesome food cleanly. The food packets are delivered to the doorsteps of the poor people identified by Thanal and the volunteers of Malabar Group in the urban suburbs and streets. Commenting on the company's success, MP Ahammed, Chairman, of Malabar Group, stated that Apart from a few centres in the Gulf countries, it is currently in use in 37 cities, including Kolkata, that this programme is dispersed across 16 states and Union Territories. The programme will now cover 70 cities across 16 States as part of the expansion. In addition, the Group intends to introduce the same programme to Zambian schoolchildren. Presently, the ambitious programme distributes up to 31,000 food packets. 51,000 nutrient-dense food packets will now be distributed as part of the scaling up. Many people in their community still struggle to get at least one square meal per day.
