Munchee the flagship brand of Ceylon Biscuits Ltd. (CBL) as a part of its CSR initiatives has once again organised its annual treat of offering biscuits for Sri Pada pilgrims. As in the past, from a special stall established at the Kalparuksha Viharaya near Nallathanni, serving of biscuits to the Sri Pada pilgrims is done during the weekends and poya days. This activity was started on the poya day of the month of January and will continue till early April for the benefit of thousands of Sri Pada pilgrims. 

This treat is organised on weekends and poya days to target more number of devotes. While enjoying biscuits from Munchee, pilgrims also have the opportunity of receiving a leaflet on Sri Pada free of charge. This leaflet has been designed to provide information such as historical background, directions to Sri Pada from the main two routes and the words specially used during the pilgrimage in brief and as such it can be useful to all walks of pilgrims especially for those who come for pilgrimage for the first time. 

Munchee organises similar initiatives during the other annual religious festivals such as Kandy perehara Nallur Kovi, Kataragama, Nallur and Talawila as well.
