Kamal Munasinghe, Area Vice President of City Hotels at Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts said, “Guided by one of our core values, which is to care for people and our communities, the ‘Meals that Heal’ project is one that we are immensely proud to initiate and continue. This is a long-term project that we look forward to continuing, and we thank our customers and guests for their continued support towards strengthening this initiative and helping bring a difference to the communities served.”

With over 10,000 meals having been served to date, ‘Meals that Heal’ has become an impactful commitment that has brought together partners and business units among John Keells Group closer to their community, and has resulted in opportunities for betterment, mental health protection, and hope for those they serve. The initiative will continue as a long-term project of the brand as the company looks to strengthen this initiative further, together with its customers and corporate partners. Customers who wish to assist in this initiative can do so by visiting the website Flavours By Cinnamon which is the brand’s delivery platform.
