A city-based pharma company ensures that the needy don’t go hungry.
What’s it about? Chennai-based pharma company Tablets India’s new CSR initiative involves feeding more than 1,000 people daily at the Annadhanam centres run by Tablets India Foundation. It started in 2019 to ensure people have at least one full meal a day. They serve the underprivileged and delivery operators.
- Tokens are issued from 9.30 am to 11.45 am to get a rough head count. The meals include rice, vegetables, sambar, rasam, and buttermilk served on a banana leaf.
- The Tondiarpet and MKB Nagar centres were the first to open, and Ashok Nagar and Mamallapuram came later. The one at Mamallapuram is attached to a temple.
Who said what? TG Srinivasan, the special officer at the centres, said they don’t turn anyone away. He said they only pay for the maintenance as the Trust runs the space.
