MLA Sri Vedavyas Kamath and Sri Naresh Shenoy have decided to serve quality food, water bottles and other necessities until the lockdown is lifted to each and every person who have been stuck in Mangaluru due to various reasons like non-availability of transport facility, migrant labours stuck due to non-availability of work, restaurants being closed and various other reasons. Also the Sevanjali Trust has decided to recognize the frontline warriors for the important role they are playing in our fight against corona. As part of this recognition, the trust will be serving free meals to the frontline warriors at all the checkposts, stations and at other places.
During the last lockdown (April-June 2020) the Trust under the leadership of Sri Vedavyas Kamath and Sri Naresh Shenoy had distributed food to over 10,000 people every day and the trust wants to continue the same during this difficult time too.
When asked about the initiative MLA Sri Vedavyas Kamath said, “No one should sleep on an empty stomach. The people of Mangaluru and other parts of the state and the country who are currently in Mangaluru are our people. Hence, we will take care of their needs like they are our family”.

The people who are stuck in Mangaluru are in a way, a form of Almighty to us. Hence, serving them is like serving the lord. We will do our best to ensure that all their basic necessities are met.”
