What is WeEat about:
Phase 2 has been very difficult for hawkers in places located at business districts and who cater primarily to office workers. At the same time, migrant workers may not have had the opportunity to taste the various ranges of hawker food found in Singapore. Migrant workers are currently not allowed to go outside of their dormitories apart from work and they have not been able to come out into our community since the last circuit breaker. This has affected their mental health and well-being as they are not able to engage in previously enjoyed community activities.
For the hawkers located at business districts:
1. Tangible economic support through bulk ordering (Budget approx $450-500 per hawker stall, for 20 hawker stalls)
2. Publicity for their businesses during the month of June, 2021
3. Many hawkers share that they love cooking and it is their passion. These orders would hopefully create opportunity for the hawkers to stay engaged in purposeful activity
For the migrant workers:
4. We hope to build a bridge between our community and our migrant brothers through food exchange. We would love to expose them to our hawker culture and to let them taste food items they may not have tried before
5. Workers who have received our food will engage in an online program to learn more about the history of the cuisine and where their food came from
Who we are:
Covid19 Migrant Support Coalition:
Established on 6 April 2020, the COVID-19 Migrant Support Coalition (CMSC) is a fully volunteer-run group-up initiative that started as a collaborative effort between a few smaller migrant workers supporting groups, together with other like-minded volunteers, to meet the needs of our migrant friends affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. To this end, we also actively engage their dorm operators and employers, the relevant Ministries as well as the wider public, so that the issues can be dealt with through a multi-sector perspective. The effort is a highly collective one, and we believe that everyone has a part to play.
