The Sikh community of Sydney has spent over $4,000 Australian dollars on a food donation program for elderly folks stuck in self-isolation.
The group—“Turbans of Australia”—have so far donated more than 1.5 tons of food. The food will be delivered to residents, who are unable to purchase basic non-perishable foods.
In New York, the Sikh Center of New York prepared and packaged more than 30,000 meals—this time for Americans stuck in self-isolation.
Because 30 times more food was being handled in New York than Melbourne, strict hygiene procedures were observed that involved wearing gloves and masks, social distancing, and sterilisation of equipment and surfaces, according to reports.
In UK, a “free mobile food support” initiative has been taken in Slough, a town in Berkshire, England.
The service provides “healthy and nutrition” food by the Sikh community of the town. Mostly to the people above the age of 65, and quarantined.
Taking to Twitter, an associate of the community Harjinder Singh Kukreja said: "Are you 65+ plus? In #Coronavirus isolation? Need support to get food? Sikhs in Slough, UK have come up with Mobile Food Support for the elderly & isolated & are Providing FREE HEALTHY & NUTRITIOUS essentials to help them! Pls share!"
