“We’re always striving to build developments with compassion in the hearts of the community. Since 18 March 2021 and throughout this Ramadan, our chefs at TGCR and Tropicana Foundation committee members have planned, prepared, and delivered 7,500 hot meals for 15 orphanages, refugees, homeless, special needs & old folks homes around the Klang Valley region. It was an arduous task to prep nutritious lunch and dinner every day, but we did it!” he said. “This combined effort by our subsidiaries at TGCR and the Tropicana Foundation has allowed us to lend a hand to the underprivileged communities during these challenging times.”

Following strict hygiene SOP, TGCR’s chefs prepared meals each day for lunch and dinner deliveries to these 15 shelters, treating the less fortunate to a delicious, nutritious, and varied menu made from fresh ingredients. With dishes such as Ayam Masak Merah, Patin Masak Lemak, Dhalca Sayur with Nasi Minyak Kacang Gajus, Fried Patin Sambal, Sayur Goreng Jawa with Steam White Rice that change every day to excite their tastebuds, the chefs, staff, and foundation members worked around the clock to organise, prepare, pack and deliver these hot meals to their recipients.

The hot meal deliveries to these homes were also supplemented by the donations of goods and daily necessities including canned food, rice, milo, and more. Supplies of washing detergents and other cleaning products were distributed to these shelters as well, to help them maintain their facilities. School bags, stationeries, books, tracksuits, t-shirts, toiletries, and care packs were also distributed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The charity drive was organised by the Tropicana Foundation, the charity arm of Tropicana that has led the CSR projects for the group since 2011, with the goal of improving the lives of the underprivileged society through various charitable initiatives.

School bags, clothes, books and care packs were also donated to the kids at Pusat Jagaan Rumah Kesayangan (Rukesa)
