Supporting Singapore’s vulnerable communities impacted by COVID-19


School children from low-income families were in danger of missing their meals during the full home-based learning period and the extension of the circuit breaker from April to June 2020.

In view of the urgent situation, we joined hands with the Ministry of Education and community partners for Recess@Home to offer help in the fastest possible way.

$2.4 million of meal subsidies were disbursed to 28,000 students via top-ups to the students’ school smartcard. Primary school students received $80, while secondary school students received $120 to purchase food and groceries at hawker centres, food courts, convenience stores and supermarkets
