Our Korean volunteer broke down in tears after witnessing a Malay destitute searching for food in a dustbin – even after we have passed him our food pack earlier – so that he can save it for later consumption.
Our free food outlet vendor mentions that he is a regular consumer of the free food items at the stall but sometimes when it runs out, he will resort to eating at the bin or any leftovers from the table.
Leftover-food eating is both a hygiene and social disorder causing future health problems for habitual consumers.
It is believed that Chinatown has at least twenty such food consumers and many are homeless elderly folks roaming the street aimlessly.
If you see a leftover-food eater here in Chinatown, please refer him to out free food outlet which is giving out fifty free food meals daily.
We are currently serving the food
needs of at least forty destitute elderly daily who will take from the stall without reservation.
Thanks to our donors and volunteers for making this world a better place.
