This COVID-19 season has revealed the best in Singaporeans and the fact that there’s a hidden Masterchef in us all. But it has also uncovered an ugly truth – some of us aren’t as well-equipped to survive a pandemic.

Groups like the elderly, low-income families and migrant workers are some of the hardest-hit communities, and even putting food on the table has become a full-on struggle. To help them stay afloat during these hard times, DBS has partnered with The Food Bank Singapore and ItsRainingRaincoats to provide meals for them.

If you haven’t heard of Feed the City, an initiative by The Food Bank Singapore, and Project Belanja, the brainchild of Blossom World, supported by ItsRainingRaincoats, it’s high time to get acquainted. The former provides food supplies for the elderly and low-income individuals while the latter supports migrant workers.

With many facing retrenchment or forced no-pay leave, the demand for these programmes is higher than ever. To alleviate the strain on these organisations, DBS has pledged $2.5 million through 300,000 meals for the beneficiaries. In addition, they’ll be matching every dollar donated up to $250,000 for each initiative.

F&B establishments like Koufu Group, Wee Nam Kee and other restaurants will be engaged to prepare these meals which feed two needs with one deed – helping the less fortunate and supporting local businesses at the same time.

Provide meals for those who need it

If you’ve been looking for a way to do your part to help these hard-hit communities, here’s a great way to start. Supporting those in need and standing in solidarity is imperative for us to weather this COVID storm together as a nation.
