To ensure that no one goes to sleep in the lockdown of coronavirus with an empty stomach, Arham Yuva Seva Group (AYSG) from Rajkot provides food for the poor here by cooking more than 30,000 chapatis per day which are also sent to other group kitchens. AYSG people have been seen taking necessary safety steps when cooking food such as carrying gloves, masks and holding social distance. Talking to ANI, one coordinator, Alpesh Modi, said, "We have served more than four lakh Chapatis till now. We will keep doing this work until the lockdown continues."

With the support of the Jain community's Gurudev Namramuni Maharaj this project was introduced throughout India, the volunteers said here. With the aid of machines, chapatis are prepared, and about 4,000 chapatis are made from one unit. Because the lockdown is implemented throughout the country, this community serves about 100 groups with food every day in Rajkot.
