THE Tanjung Bungah constituency service centre in Penang has launched the JOMtapao! initiative to help food entrepreneurs in the area to increase income.
Tanjung Bungah assemblyman Zairil Khir Johari said the initiative would also promote the use of food delivery apps in this new norm.
“In collaboration with DeliverEat, we launched the JOMtapao! initiative which will run from March 8 to April 7.
“Through the initiative, DeliverEat users who order from food sellers in Tanjung Bungah who are registered with DeliverEat will enjoy a discount of RM5 if their orders exceed RM20.
“Users just need to enter the promotional code ‘JOMtapao’ when ordering and each user is limited to six redemptions.
“A total of 3,000 redemptions will be offered during the initiative, ” said Zairil in a statement.
Prior to this initiative, the Tanjung Bungah constituency service centre carried out six others for the benefit of the local community.
“The protracted Covid-19 pandemic has caused a lot of hardship to the people.
“In line with the state government’s efforts to ease the burden of the people, we launched our own initiatives, ” the statement said.
The initiatives implemented were JOMprint!, which provided free printing services to students; JOMcoding!, which provided free coding courses; JOMcheck!, which offered subsidised Covid-19 tests; JOMonline!, which offered free phone SIM cards with data for students; JOMbelajar! which provided free online tuition classes for those sitting for PT3 and SPM examination and JOMniaga!, an entrepreneurship initiative for those affected by the pandemic.
