20 Michelin-recognised restaurant have joined forces in delivering 2,000 meals The Food Bank’s beneficiaries from 18-24 May.
The recipients of their efforts: low-income families, the elderly and the less fortunate across Singapore.
The list of participating restaurants includes three-MICHELIN-star Odette, two-MICHELIN-star Saint Pierre, Shisen Hanten and Zen. Local Michelin stall restaurants such as Hawker Chan, Chey Sua Carrot Cake and Muthu’s curry did their part too.
“Even as restaurants and dining establishments have been hard hit by measures intended to curb the transmission of Covid-19, their sense of compassion, hospitality and service to feed the community have never wavered,” says Chan Hock Sen, Country Head of Michelin Singapore. “They have been the first to volunteer their resources towards the most vulnerable in society, and we are proud to join them in contributing towards those efforts while also supporting them in turn.”
Co-founder of the Food Bank Singapore, Nicholas Ng ,notes that while the charity organisation is trying its best to feed those in need, the demand for meals is outstripping supply. “An increasing number of people who have lost their regular income stream due to the Covid-19 pandemic are struggling to put food on their tables,” he says. “We are warmed and grateful that Michelin and the renowned restaurants are contributing to our efforts. May they inspire more like-minded organisations to come forth to help ensure that nobody goes hungry in Singapore.”
