Bengaluru: Mercy Mission - a coalition of NGOs with the support of corporates and government departments has a food distribution system in place wherein 5,000 food packets are handed over to migrants boarding trains. It is a round-the-clock operation undertaken by the labour department, Railways, police and NGOs.
The mission has 6 kitchens and 6 warehouses across Bengaluru and 100 locations with points of contact that prepare meals and ration kits to be distributed to the vulnerable and needy. The volunteers believe that distributing food to migrants and daily wage workers is just like coronavirus knowing no community, caste or creed; food and hunger also doesn't know that.
