Malaysia's F&B scene may have been shaken to its core by the unprecedented events of late, but it has also displayed some amazing examples of entrepreneurs and businesses helping those who need it most.
Agrain is one such business. With its 1-for-1 campaign on March 27, this healthy eatery has mobilised its loyal following to help provide over 5,000 healthy meal boxes to hospital staff in 15 different hospitals and health centres.
Focusing on the hospitals that have yet to benefit from existing donation drives, Agrain is coordinating with various medical centres to help keep food waste from donations to a minimum and ensure that enough food packs are given out where they are needed most.
Through the 1-for-1 campaign, members of the public are invited to sponsor food boxes (RM16.90 each excluding an 80 sen delivery fee) for medical staff battling the Covid-19 pandemic. Agrain will then match every box donated.
Agrain co-founders Kendrick Tan and Chuah Kee Wei tell us why it’s more important than ever for the F&B scene to create a positive impact.
