28 May 2020 – The UTB Student Representative Council (MPPUTB) and Campus L.E.A.D. Civil Engineering participated in the Social Kitchen programme that was organised by the Society for Community Outreach and Training (SCOT) for six days since 18 May 2020.
The Social Kitchen was aimed to help single mothers to gain extra income by preparing meals and also to train some selected single mothers about business, technical and marketing skills to empower them, while encouraging youth to volunteer in assisting the single mothers.
The students along with the single mothers cooked and prepared about 100 to 150 packs of packed food per day at Crust and Crumbs, Serusop and Avenue 41, Kiarong. The meals were then delivered in time for iftar to some selected underprivileged families residing at Sentosa Flat and Subok Flat.
According to Amir Iskandar bin Anuar; Head of ExCo Leadership, Development & Mentor; the Social Kitchen programme has helped them to instill a sense of responsibility to give back to the society.
SCOT collaborated with KadaiRuncit, an online grocery store, where members of the public are able to purchase the meal online as donation for the underprivileged families to break their fast throughout the holy month of Ramadhan.
