Chef Vikas Khanna To Organise World’s Largest Food Drive Of 2 Mn Meals

Vikas Khanna is best known as India’s very own as Michelin Star Chef, but what a lot of us are missing out on is what a wonderful humanitarian he is and how he is giving back to society through all his success. As part of his efforts to provide millions of meals to poor Indians who have suffered greatly under the coronavirus lockdown, Vikas Khanna is organising the world’s largest food drive and plans to serve two million meals.

Vikas Khanna: World’s Largest Food Drive

Just recently Chef Vikas Khanna was in the news for the World’s Largest Eid Feast Organised In Mumbai. On being asked, why he chose Eid for this kind gesture, he replied, “”I have a part of my life that not many know of, which is that a Muslim woman rescued me during the 1992 riots. She took care of me for two nights when there was no one was willing to take me. This was an ode to her.”

Recently, he also joined hands with Sonu Sood to ensure that all migrant workers would get a delicious cooked meal prepared by him and Named A Dish ‘Moga’ After Sonu Sood’s Hometown. Now while some people might be content with all that they’ve done, Chef Vikas has decided to up the game and has decided to organise the world’s largest food drive in association with Maximus Collabs on June 9, 2020. In Ghaziabad 10,000+ ration & essential items bags will be blessed by Laxmi Narayan Tripathi and will be distributed in NCR by the Heroes of NDRF to people with Disabilities, Transgenders, Sex-Workers, AIDS Patients, Old Age Homes, Leprosy Homes amongst others.

From setting up sup kitchens to help the poor to serving cooked meals to migrants at the bus stand, railway stations and highways, Amritsar boy Vikas Khanna has gone out of his way to make a difference to those afflicted by coronavirus. We at Curly Tales decided to get in touch with the Chef himself to ask him what drives him to do so much for society and why he decided to organise a feast for Eid and feed more than 2 lakh people. He shares, “You know, we’re living in extremely dark times. Everyone is stressed because we don’t see any light anywhere. The world is shaking. So I am just doing my bit and putting my learning from working at a community kitchen in Amritsar to some use.”



Vikas Khanna is proof that an act of kindness can go a really long way. One woman decided to save Vikas all the way back in 1992 and offer him shelter. Today, her kindness has moved forward 1000 fold through all his initiatives and drives. Respect & Salute!
