Thanking Everyone Who Offered Help, Goila Says, “Indians Still Care”…
Taking to Twitter on April 19, Goila stated, “I’ve about 300 DMs pending and I haven’t moved an inch since 9am from my table – what that has taught me is that Indians still care. They care about their neighbours, they care about humans who are suffering in their community and most importantly they’re willing to help.” He added, “I possibly can’t thank people enough who’re offering to help and have come forward today. People who have shared large lists or have taken the time from their day to share their experiences or curated lists of food providers they trust and believe in.” Goila also wrote, “Alas, there is hope because there will be food on someone’s table :). Remember food is a necessity and not a luxury, atleast for now.” The chef has also shared dietary advises for COVID patients and told them to have lots of vegetables.
