KOTA KINABALU: Food delivery riders around Penampang will have a treat early next week as restaurateur May Chiew and her two business partners are planning a charity drive-through for them.
Chiew said looking at the current pandemic that has severely affected everyone’s livelihood, she feels compelled to give out in any little way possible.
“So my partners and I decided since we have just opened up our seafood restaurant at the i-Plaza commercial centre close to Donggongon in Penampang, why not treat food riders to a free meal?” she said.
She said the event scheduled for Tuesday (July 27), will serve over 100 food packs from their seafood restaurant for food delivery riders from 10.30am to 1.30pm.
“We are a seafood restaurant and do not serve pork, so I think everyone should be able to enjoy our food,” Chiew said.
She said though not much, she hopes the free meal would make food riders happy and full during lunch hour.
“We see how these riders work every day, rain or shine, they still go around in their motorcycles and bicycles sending food for customers,” she said.
“These are the types of attitude that we salute and hope others would emulate, more so during these trying times,” Chiew said.
She feels that if the community cared more about each other and helped in whatever little way they could, it would make the world a better place.
