Ola is set to distribute 1.2 Mn meal kits to support its drivers across the country through Ola Foundation. The social welfare arm of the cab aggregator has partnered with the Akshaya Patra Foundation to deliver wholesome meal kits to drivers and their families across 13 Indian cities including Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, and Jaipur, amongst others.
The Ola Foundation is a charitable trust backed by Ola (ANI Technologies Pvt Ltd). It is presently working to empower women, the driver community, and other vulnerable groups in the country.
The collaboration is part of the “Drive the Driver Fund” initiative that was launched by Ola Foundation in March this year to support its driver-partners across the country who were severely impacted by the pandemic.
