Indian Restaurant In Australia Offers Free Food To Firefighters And Victims Of Bushfires

Amidst the raging bushfires that have engulfed Australia since September 2019, owners of an Indian restaurant in Bairnsdale have been providing free food to the victims.

Kanwaljit Singh and his wife Kamaljit Kaur, owners of the Desi Grill restaurant, offered free food to firefighters and victims of the bushfires in the East Gippsland region. They were helped by Sikh Volunteers Australia, a Melbourne-based charity.

Food van will be here in Bairnsdale Oval relief centre from breakfast to dinner.

“It’s terrible out there. People are severely affected and they need food and shelter. It’s our duty to serve them when they need us the most,” Singh was quoted by SBS Punjabi.

“Last night had been very busy. We helped the volunteers with cooking rice, curries and pasta and the food was distributed in at least 500 takeaway containers.”

“We serve free food to firefighters and people affected by bushfires. Please! See us at reception to accept this token of love and respect,” reads a poster in front of the restaurant.
