Dishoom reaches 10 million meals milestone with Magic Breakfast and Akshaya Patra

The chain has been donating meals to the two charities since 2015.

Dishoom announced that it has now donated over 10 million meals through their ‘meal for a meal’ charity partnership with Magic Breakfast and Akshaya Patra.

Since 2015, for every meal served, the Dishoom team has donated a meal to a child in the UK or India that might otherwise go hungry. The commitment began during Ramadan as Dishoom’s act of charity (‘zakat’) and was made permanent at Diwali the same year.

In the past twelve months, Dishoom was able to donate over 1,225,000 meals to their charity partners in 2020, with almost 250,000 meals donated through their at-home offerings alone.

“It is with thanks to their charity partners, the hard work and dedication of every team member and, of course, the support of their kind guests and patrons that Dishoom have now reached the milestone of providing over 10 million meals to children in the UK and India,” it said in a statement.
