MELAKA: The state Gujarati Association is willing to increase its efforts to provide free meals to the people here.
Association chairman Bharat Ajmera said hundreds of packets of free vegetarian meals were snapped up by the public within an hour after its launch on Feb 5.
“We started the free meal campaign as part of our social responsibility effort during the movement control order. We will continue to provide free meals until the end of March, ” he said on Sunday.
Bharat said food packets were distributed outside the Shree Ambaji Temple along Jalan Ujong Pasir at around 6pm daily. The temple is the only Gujarati-themed Hindu temple in the state.
He said the meals were distributed to everyone regardless of their ethnicity.
“Volunteers will hand it out to anyone stopping by. We don’t mind when some ask for additional packets for their family, ” he added.
