To help families suffering from COVID-19, some people have come forward to provide them with healthy meals.
A Vadodara man has started a service for door-step delivery of “hygienic lunch and dinner” during their quarantine period. “We are here with you in this Covid crisis. If your family is suffering from Covid-19, we will deliver hygienic lunch & dinner at your doorstep, free of cost for entire quarantine period,” Shubhal Shah wrote Twitter. The service is restricted to Vadodara city only.
