IHCL, a company that operates the iconic Taj Mahal Palace in Churchgate, in partnership with the Taj West End in Bangalore, is supplying over 25,500 meals to medical staff in two hospitals.

Over 1,91,000 meals have been delivered in New Delhi. As of March 30, 2020, the company started serving meals at Lady Hardinge Medical College in New Delhi which then expanded to include seven hospitals in New Delhi. This initiative has now been extended to Coimbatore and Agra as well.
