Thankfully, Because We Care and Share and Serve Our City Singapore, together with the Whampoa Community Development & Welfare Fund Committee have come up with a joint initiative – The Drive-Thru Lunch Treats – to help alleviate some of these burdens.
100 lunch packs
Drive-Thru Lunch Treats was launched on May 31.
Volunteers will be distributing 100 packets of lunch to the drivers.
Taxi drivers and PHVs can collect a free pack of lunch and a care pack from them at Kallang Community Club (CC) between the time of 10:15am to 11:15am every weekday, from May 31 to Jun. 11.
A makeshift drive through point has been set up for the food distribution and collection.
The food, along with a care pack containing wet wipes, hand soap and a travel sized hand sanitiser, will be handed over to the drivers with a tray to prevent contact.
Helping both drivers and hawkers
According to their Facebook post, the community organisers and volunteers have prepared halal, non-halal and vegetarian options.
Food including chicken rice, nasi goreng, xinzhou beehoon, charsiew and roast pork rice were bought from Berseh Food Centre and Bendemeer Market and Food Centre for the drivers to enjoy.
This initiative was designed with the intention to support both groups during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).
