The Group has invested over 1 crore to combat the COVID19 crisis, with significant interventions.

Under the Embassy Cares program, around 2,50,000 meals have been distributed to daily wage workers and migrant families across several locations in Bangalore. Embassy Group provided the 3,500 families of students of government school, by offering a total of 1,47,000 meals in the form of ration kit. These kits contain rice, dal, channa, oil, spices and vegetables. Distribution of the kits took place in Government Schools across North and Central Bangalore.

Embassy Leisure, a subsidiary of Embassy Group that operates restaurants in Bangalore, has prepared and distributed 3,900 meals till date since the 1st of April for people who earn daily wages. They will continue to serve meals as the lockdown continues. The meals, cooked by 7 chefs from Lounge Hospitality at their Quick Service Restaurant kitchens located at Embassy Techvillage Business Park, are distributed in the Jeevan Bheema Nagar region by volunteers. Doctors, nurses and patients at C.V. Raman Nagar Hospital are also recipients.

As part of these interventions, daily wage and migrant workers in the areas of Ulsoor, Mahadevpura and Koramangala have benefitted through the distribution of food rations.

Aditya Virwani, Chief Operating Officer, Embassy Group, said, “With so many underprivileged members of our communities, daily wage and migrant workers trying to make ends meet during this crisis, it’s important that we all step up to do our part. We believe that this pandemic can only be contained if we all stay at home and provide for those who need basic food and other necessities to survive. We are grateful to our corporate tenants, our employees and customers who have extensively supported our efforts.”

Additionally, Embassy group has installed hydration centres at 4 distinct locations across Bangalore in support ofBengaluru City Traffic Police Force as they work night and day to contain the spread of the virus and enforce the nation-wide lock-down.
