Ola Foundation partners with Akshaya Patra to provide 1.2 lakh meals to drivers

Chennai: Ola Foundation, the social welfare arm of Ola, plans to serve 1.2 lakh meals to support the driver partner network.

This is a part of the nationwide initiative ‘Drive the Driver Fund’ that was launched by Ola Foundation in March to support the driver partners affected by the pandemic. Ola Foundation has partnered with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to deliver wholesome meal kits to drivers and their families across 13 Indian cities.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation will facilitate the on-ground implementation of the initiative by providing relief to local communities across Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, and Jaipur amongst others.

Building on its previous efforts to ensure the well-being of driver-partners and their families, the meal distribution drive is in line with the Ola Foundation’s goal of extending their support to the driver community.

The welfare arm has already enabled more than 1 crore meals for this community through the ‘Drive The Driver’ fund.
