Rajiv Singal Tied Up With Asha’s Kitchen To Provide Meals To Covid Patients In Mumbai

In September 2020, Rajiv Singal’s entire family fell prey to the coronavirus. At that time, the quarantined family were initially admitted to the hospital. After they were discharged from the hospital and home quarantined, they were in dire need of healthy home-cooked meals. He stated to ANI that initially, his neighbour helped him with meals, but it was neither tasty nor hygienic. That was when he opted for a tiffin service. The 2-year-old home-cooked food delivery service, Asha’s Kitchen, provided delicious healthy meals. His personal trials and tribulations during the coronavirus pandemic inspired Rajiv Singal to sponsor meals for families undergoing home quarantine amid the second wave in April 2021.
