Campaign Story

Adopt-a-Bento is a community movement organised by The Saturday Movement, a non-profit organisation
and The Peranakan restaurant.

Since April, Adopt-a-Bento has delivered more than 10,000 Sedap-a-licious (delicious and nutritious) Peranakan Meals to a hospital staffers working both frontline and behind-the-scenes, as well as vulnerable elderly poor living in rental flats around Singapore.

Saying Thanks to our Front liners

Many hospital personnel such as pharmacists, radiographers, housekeepers and cleaners are working long hours behind-the-scenes in backroom operations, selflessly sacrificing their personal time and health to support Singapore’s fight against COVID-19.   Some even cut down on their lunch hour or personal break time to get more work done.

We’re sending them a Thank You in the best way we can, with hearty Nyonya Bento.  Sets comprising dishes like Chap Chye, Vegetarian Spring Rolls, Ayam Buah Keluak, Chicken Pongteh, Nyonya Curry Chicken, homemade Sambal Timun, Achar and our signature Bunga Telang (Blue Pea Flower) Thai Rice, all made with lots of TLC and no MSG.   All meals include Gula Melaka Bubble Milk Tea or Bunga Telang Tea as a sweet treat to uplift their spirits for going that extra mile.

Helping our fellow Singaporeans

In addition to hospital staffers, many elderly poor and ex-Sungei Road Vendors living in rental flats have been adversely affected by social distancing and Circuit Breaker measures, facing additional stress on their daily income, health and mental well-being. Adopt-a-Bento provides almost 500 meals (Halal and non-Halal) to this group each week, ensuring their overall well-being and assuring them that they have not been forgotten and will not be left behind in times of crisis.

How You Can Help

In adversity we must step up, reach out and do more and ‘Feed Love Back’, in this time of crisis to those most in need of support from their fellow citizens.

Each donation of $5 per Bento Box and $2 per Bubble Tea goes towards covering the cost of ingredients, manpower and delivery of the meals. The retail price of each Peranakan Bento box and bubble tea is usually $15 and $5 respectively.

Thank you for your part in making sure No One Is Left Behind in our fight against COVID-19! Your contribution towards our goal of $50,000 will share the heartwarming flavours of true blue Peranakan cooking with our most deserving beneficiaries.
