A six member committee was also set up to look after the overall affairs of the Bethel Kitchen, headed by the ADC, Limanenla. Since June 3, the work-force has been gathering at the Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) hall to cater to thousands of people who are in the quarantine centres, including the caregivers. “It is like running a small factory,” she expressed on the work distribution among the volunteers—from cleaning the rice to packing and delivering.
On a rotational basis, between 80-100 volunteers are engaged in the food catering process beginning from 4 am in the moning till 8 pm in the evening. With the community kitchen in place, she said that food is now regularly delivered to the quarantine centres on time thrice a day — 6:30 am for breakfast, 12 noon for lunch and 6 pm for dinner. On Thursday, 1,640 people in the quarantine centres were served.
