New York: Michelin-star chef Vikas Khanna, who has successfully distributed four million dry ration meals to the needy across 79 cities in India amidst the COVID-19 crisis, has called for solidarity and unity among the people to defeat the pandemic. Khanna, living in New York City, started an initiative in April to create a supply chain to ensure dry ration is procured and distributed to orphanages, old-age homes and leprosy centers as the coronavirus cases increased in India and the government implemented a lockdown to control the spread of the virus. In less than a month, the 48-year-old world-renowned chef, author and film-maker has been able to procure and distribute landmark four million dry ration meals or more than 3,100 quintals of ration, including rice, lentils and wheat flour, to orphanages and old-age homes and other needy individuals across 79 cities in India.
