Schools are closed, streets are emptied and the malls are cleared out. It’s quite clear to us the seriousness of this COVID-19 pandemic and how much our daily lives have been disrupted by the on-going situation. Not only are normal working citizens impacted, but this outbreak has also more greatly affected the lives of the less fortunate in our society.
With more families going into vulnerable economic circumstances, our social service resources are also being put to the test with the need to support the increasing number of beneficiaries. As such, many local companies and individuals have also stepped up to offer help to our fellow citizens in need. One such initiative is Good Food For Community.
Brought together by Common Ground, Manna Pot Catering, Society Staples Cares, TreeDots and The Thought Collective, Good Food For Community aims to raise S$14,800 to provide cooked meals to struggling families during this Circuit Breaker period.
To prevent duplication of efforts taken by other sector partners who are also doing their best to care for the needy, Good Food For Community is working closely with the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) to lend a helping hand to those who are currently uncared for.
With the donations collected, Good Food For Community hopes to provide two meals daily to those in need during the ‘Circuit Breaker’ period from 7 April to 4 May 2020. To date, over 200 halal-certified meals from Manna Pot Catering have been safely delivered via contactless delivery services to the beneficiaries, easing their concern on this basic necessity: food.
With the help and support from all Singaporeans, together as one nation, we can break the cycle of hunger and at the same time, break the circuit of COVID-19.
