Indian food joint providing hundreds of meals to GTA frontline workers

Apr 30 2020, 7:35 am

While one of the GTA’s most flavourful spots for Indian grub can’t be open right now, its team is still finding ways to serve the community.

Albeit, like so many others these days, differently.

Tandoori Flame Restaurants are working across their locations to support frontline workers in the midst of this ongoing crisis. As such, since April 1, the kitchens at both the Brampton and Mississauga locations of the buffets have been preparing meals for frontline workers.

Deliveries have been sent to hospital staff at Credit Valley, Mississauga, and Brampton Civic Hospitals, as well as for members of the Peel Regional Police Service.

Over the past few weeks, the business says they have provided over 750 meals, and continue to provide up to 200 individually-wrapped meals weekly to those working on the front lines.

“This is just our small gesture of appreciation for all healthcare workers are doing to keep us safe,” Managing Director Shraey Gulati said in a release.

“We all have to do our part.” He went on to share that we can all help thank our healthcare professionals by practicing social distancing, good hand-washing etiquette and only leaving your home for essential items. Let’s all do our part to stay healthy and safe.”

Across the country, a British Columbia location of the chain has been taking a similar approach, and has provided approximately 2,500 meal deliveries to various local hospitals and police stations since March 24. The restaurant has also collaborated with Happy Singh Eats, the chain’s newest subsidiary, to provide an additional 50 free meals per day.

Altogether, the company has donated approximately $35,000 in meals to frontline workers, and those directly affected by the ongoing pandemic, all across the country.
