FARM TO TABLE FOR THE B40
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the lack of food security in Malaysia. As breadwinners of low-income families lose their jobs due to the pandemic, providing their family food has become increasingly challenging. For most B40 families, a well balanced nutritious diet is difficult to achieve. For this project, the main aim is to deliver the watermelons, a fruit high in vitamin C, to B40 families residing in Subang, Malaysia. People can purchase watermelons for these families and can choose to pay RM60 for 3 melons, RM 100 for 5 melons, or RM 200 for 10 melons. Along with these melons, dental kits provided by Artius Dental will be given to these families as well. An additional purchasing option is the option to pay for 5 melons and provide 5 melons to Pitstop, a community cafe by day and a soup kitchen serving food to the homeless by night.
