Over 4,000 meals distributed
The meal consisted of two pieces of Chicken McCrispy, an apple pie, and a canned drink.

General manager for McDonald's Singapore, Benjamin Boh, said that this initiative is a "small gesture of appreciation" for the migrant workers whose "contributions we do not take for granted".
Mohammed Shahneazur, a resident of Westlite Juniper, expressed his gratitude:
“My friends and I sometimes enjoy ordering burgers and fries from McDonald’s to Westlite Juniper after a day’s work, so I’m very happy that McDonald’s is treating us to this special meal for Deepavali. I’m also happy that Westlite and the people in Singapore care about migrant workers.”
