SHAH Alam City Council (MBSA) gave out 300 lunch vouchers worth RM10 each to factory workers and university students who walked into Medan Selera Prima Section 2.

It was part of the city council’s initiative to help them cope with the escalating cost of living.

MBSA, along with Selangor Malay Petty Traders and Hawkers Association Kota Anggerik branch, distributed food vouchers at the food court.

Shah Alam mayor Cheremi Tarman said it was important for the city council to step in to help ordinary folks have a meal.

“We need to build a spirit of caring in our communities.

“Our council’s action could spur companies to conduct similar corporate social responsibility programmes, which could make a difference in the community.”

He said this was the first time that meal vouchers had been given out.

“We plan to have a similar initiative in Sungai Buloh and Jalan Kebun.

“There is a possibility the vouchers would be increased to 500 so that more people would benefit,” he said.

Cheremi added that the council had given essential items to orphans and the underprivileged last month.
