It has been 13 years and this is The Saturday Movement’s first fundraiser to support the ministry of unconditional love towards the elderly living in rental flats.
Besides providing good quality food at S17 Community Kitchen, weekly lunch buffets, daily coffee breaks and weekly door-to-door visits with a loaf of bread and fresh fruit, the most important aspect has been offering the pioneers of Singapore love and care in a humble act of love and kindness.
During Circuit Breaker, The Saturday Movement provided two meals per person per day including Sundays and public holidays. Each pack was hand delivered by a small team of volunteers determined to ensure the residents stay indoors and not be exposed to the virus. A total of 103,000 food packs were delivered during the three months. The food was cooked by The Peranakan Restaurant and halal food catered from Orchard Hotel at a special price.
As the average Singaporean feels the pressures of raising costs, what more the vulnerable elderly residents. The Saturday Movement is seeking like-minded individuals and companies to step forward to help this on-going support for the elderly.
For the first time, regional Peranakan chefs from Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand will come together to cook a Peranakan feast that is not to be missed. Gather your friends and families to join the gala dinner.
