5 Inspiring Local F&Bs That Do More Than Just Serve Great Food

May 25, 2020

With circuit breaker “officially” ending on June 1, I’m sure many of us are staying hopeful that things will get better in time with the gradual resumption and preparation plans the government has in place. While we wait patiently to tide this over together, we hope to bring light to those fighting to stay afloat – especially the F&B industry which has been among those hardest-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our love for food has always been a part of us and as much as we can do to help, we hope to use our platform wisely to share some amazing acts of kindness in Singapore. Be it a big or small action, these local F&B businesses are going all out to bring good food to your home, all while supporting a community that is much in need – the delivery drivers.

Check out these 5 local F&B businesses who are giving 100% of the delivery fees directly to the delivery drivers and order from them the next time round! #supportlocal #savefnb
