Putting it to good use: The homeless collecting their hot meal at iM4U’s brand new food truck.

ABOUT 200 homeless people were fed by iM4U and Kechara Soup Kitchen during Ramadan.

With the arrival of their new food truck, iM4U looked at new and innovative ways to help the homeless.

Under the Ihya’ Ramadan – Cook4U programme, iM4U collaborated with Kechara Soup Kitchen to feed the homeless at three different locations.

As part of the launch for the food truck, iM4U is looking to perfect providing fresh food to the homeless.

The role of Kechara Soup Kitchen in this programme is to lend their expertise in feeding the homeless.

“We welcome any parties who would want to help us feed the homeless.

“Kechara Soup Kitchen has been operating since 2006 and we are more than happy to see the youth participating in our activities as it helps them to value what they have now.

“With the brand new food truck, I hope iM4U can further reach out to the homeless areas across Malaysia,” said Kechara Soup Kitchen’s project manager Wong.

Cook4U is an initiative by iM4U where volunteers will cook for a good cause.

This time around, the volunteers cooked for the homeless.

Vegetarian food such as egg sambal, fried mix vegetables and fried mee hoon siam were part of the menu provided by the volunteers.

“Ihya’ Ramadan – Cook4U gives our volunteers the experience to cook and serve the homeless.

“We are working together with volunteers from a culinary background to prepare the food.

“The Cook4U programme gives the volunteers a platform to practise their cooking skills too,” said iM4U brand management group director Efny Johan.

This collaboration ran every Saturday during Ramadan.

A total of 25 iM4U volunteers prepared, packed and delivered the vegetarian meals using the food truck.

At the venues, the volunteers were also in charge of heating up the packed food before it was served to the homeless.
