Factories are shut and workers are sitting idle. What better use could corporates have made of their factory kitchens in these unprecedented times, other than to throw them open to feed the migrant population and daily wage earners left to fend for themselves. From the beginning of last week, RPG Foundation is serving pre-cooked meals to migrant workers through the company’s staff kitchens at RPG Group factories in Nagpur, Mumbai, Nashik, Jabalpur, Jaipur and Vadodara. RPG Foundation is dishing out 3,500 meals a day collectively from all its factory locations. Other corporates like the Shapoorji Pallonji Group, Luxmi Group and Merlin Group in West Bengal too are extending a helping hand for the sustenance of migrant workers.Luxmi Group, which owns the iconic Darjeeling tea garden ‘Makaibari’, has set up a quarantine centre for migrant labourers in the hill districts of West Bengal. Rudra Chatterjee, the MD of Luxmi Group, which is a family run enterprise, said it has already taken necessary permissions from district administration. They have created isolation wards for migrants coming back with food and lodging for 15 days.For some companies specially the construction sector,  the main objective is to explain labour that they would be safer by not returning home and  for this companies are not only supplying daily essentials but also arranging medical camps and isolation wards.
