ISKCON Food Relief to provide TB Hospital patients with wholesome food
Sep 7, 2014 (By Jyoti Shelar, Mumbai Mirror) — Hygiene, nutrition and good taste are the mantras of ISKCON cooks, who will set up the canteen at Sewree’s TB Hospital, which has come under fire for its poor hygiene and bad food.
Patients at Sewree’s TB Hospital will soon be fed hygienic, protein-rich food specially prepared by cooks from the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). Keeping in mind that patients need wholesome meals to improve their health, BMC has asked ISKCON to set up a kitchen at the 1,000-bed hospital, that has recently come under fire for bad food and poor hygiene.
A team of ISKCON’s food relief foundation, that provides mid-day meals in civic schools, visited the hospital and reviewed its kitchen a fortnight ago. “Good diet is extremely important for TB patients. We want them to get a hygienic and nutritious diet and ISKCON is known for that,” said Dr Suhasini Nagda, director of civic hospitals.
